The easiest way to put mittens on the end of a scarf is just to fold over the ends of the scarf and sew in place.

Do you want the hat as part of the scarf too? Are you knitting, sewing or crocheting?

I suggest using a sweatshirt hood as a pattern for the hood (one center back-top seam). Add 1/2 of the scarf pattern to the lower front of the hood pattern. If you don't plan to use a drawstring on the hood, you should try pinning a scarf width piece of fabric to the front of the sweatshirt hood to see how high and at what angle the scarf piece has to be to make a snug fit. When you've figured that out, make your combined 1/2 hood scarf pattern. Cut 2 pieces right sides together. Sew the hood back-top seam. Polar fleece would be good for this.
I've never seen a scarf and mittens combined. For convenience and not losing mittens, the easiest solution is to make a cord (braid that matches the scarf?) that will reach from one wrist - up the sleeve, across the back and down the other sleeve to the other wrist plus about 6 inches. Sew or tie the mittens to the cord and thread them through the coat/jacket. Mittens can be removed and just dangle without being dropped or lost.
