A simple cardigan and a beautiful scarf with an easy leaf pattern... add a few buttons and you get a million different looks!! So many options, here's a few suggestions: use different colours for the scarf and cardigan? two different types of yarn maybe? make 2 different scarfs? a simple stripy one for a more casual look? button, unbutton, cross or twist the scarf? wear it on the right side or the reverse one? aligned on both sides or not...? the possibilities are endless. I'm sure you'll have fun with it!
