I'd crochet a chain on each side of the hat for a tie; it'd take way less yarn than that braid. The chains just need to be long enough to tie under the chin with minimal extra.

Or ... stop on the hat altogether and work on the scarf and see how far you can get.

What color is that yarn? name/number? I will look around!!!

ETA: Landscape has been discontinued by Lion Brand and there is NONE on ebay. So...I would suggest finding a similar weight/size of yarn in a coordinating color probably in a solid color and use what you have now to accent the new solid yarn. Maybe do stripes or edging in the multiocolor? I don't know what your pattern is nor how much yarn it calls for.
