Why is it "a sweater and a scarf" but no usage of "một"?

"một" is implied. So unless you want to emphasize the number of sweaters and scarves you're currently wearing, no need to say "một."

I used một but had to also use cái with both to be accepted. Why? I have no idea, just followed all my mistakes and corrections.

With một, you usually need to include the classifier in Vietnamese

A better English translation is " I wear sweaters and scarves.

"áo ấm" is also acceptable. I am native speaker and I use "áo ấm" more than "áo lạnh"

Vì ở Việt nam, trời ấm, không có lạnh...
