Loops and Threads Charisma 3 skeins for both beanie and scarf, 2 skeins of the changing color and 1 skein of a matching solid color

What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It is a beginner pattern, both the scarf and the hat, casting on, knits and purls, and binding off is the only thing you need to know. My scarf ended up 5" wide by 70" long with a 21 stitch cast on.
