It should, but you may knit tight, or changing the stitch pattern may affect it; the 3x3 is more like ribbing and that would draw it in. How many sts per inch are you getting? Measure that, then divide it into the 138 sts and that should be close to the full size. It may be a bit longer when you get some more length to it which will stretch out the stitches to a longer length.

Is Mima yarn a bulky weight yarn (a class 5 weight on the label)? I couldn't find the yarn to check. The yarn used in the pattern is Lionbrand Woolease Chunky, a bulky yarn.
If casting on 138sts made sense from the measurement of your gauge swatch, you should be ok. It's a little difficult to judge the length while the scarf is on the needle. You could take the scarf off the needle by threading the sts onto a good length of scrap yarn and then measure the length or try it on to see if it's right.

I know I should have measure how many sts per inch i get but I lost my meter so I couldn't do it. I have to buy another one asap.

The Mima yarn is the thickest yarn that my shop offers and it is quite bad quality. I can't read anything from the label because it is in Cyrillic and I can't read Cyrillic (the yarn is from Macedonia).

I will finish this scarf and hope that when I'm done I will have enough length to loop it twice around my neck, and in the future I will always do a gauge swatch before knitting.

With a bulky yarn and size 13s you're probably getting about 2 to 3 sts per inch, so for 138 sts that would be at least 46" long to 55" so that ought to work for you. And it may relax a little when you wash it out.

Thank you. I will finish it and for the next one I will firstly make a sample knit.

Does anyone know if $7,36 is too much for Sirdar BIG SOFTIE Wool, and if I buy one yarn can I make shorter scarf? (with needles 10mm or 12 mm)

I don't know about the price, but one skein of bulky yarn doesn't have a lot of yardage in it, so you might only be able to make a very short scarf or neckwarmer,.

You can check out a few companies for Sirdar Big Softee prices. Here's Yarnmarket. But note that it has only 49yds per skein and the scarf you linked to takes about 300yds.
