Sauge Scarf by September Knits. Sauge is cast on using Long-tail Cast-on using a slightly larger needle size for fingering weight yarn to give it perfect drape and wrapping abilities. Two-color brioche is used to create the ribbing for the border. A deep brioche rib is created before transitioning into the main body section. This section is a sequence of slipped stitches using both the main and contrast color. Then the two-color brioche rib is created again to end the scarf as we began. Sauge is cast off using a stretchy bind off of your choice.
