Achernar features delicate, interlocking cables worked in a DK weight yarn. This medium-sized scarf looks great with the Shedir hat in Knitty’s breast cancer awareness mini-issue.

A note on yarn substitution: This pattern looks best if it is aggressively blocked open to highlight the cables and reduce the fabric’s natural tendency to curl. When choosing a substitute yarn, make sure to choose one that can be blocked; yarns with a higher percent of acrylic may not work well for this pattern.
