The Counter Scarf is a Pre-Hardmode accessory sold by the Clothier NPC for 10 Gold Coin.

Wearing the scarf grants the player the ability to dash a base distance of 14 blocks left or right by double tapping the ◀ Left or ▶ Right key. While dashing, the player will dodge attacks and is granted the Scarf Cooldown. This cooldown will temporarily prevent the user from dodging any more attacks, though they are still able to dash.

The scarf also increases damage for true melee weapons by 10%.
