Lovely, I vote for braided.  How are you going to attach them together?

oh i agree with squirrelgirl, won't they be heavy??

also, the third one on there, the one that's multi-colored, do you happen to have the label for that particular yarn? I'm pretty positive (if it is lion's brand.. or some other very common michael's/walmart brand that is) that it's the yarn i need to finish my scarf! I have half a knitted scarf but i ran out of yarn and  can't seem to find another skein ANYWHERE! so i was thinking, if it has a name or product number or something i could order it offline.

thanks:)

I tried the braided scarf on and it really didn't seem heavy - and in answer to how they will be attached together I plan to just crochet the ends together and then sew a few little stiches in here and there down the braid so it will keep its shape.  This pattern is in one of the Debbie Bliss books, but I just saw the idea and didn't actually read the pattern so don't know how she recommends finishing it.

And to answer your question Owalkerjillo, The multi-colored yarn is Bernat SofteeChunky in Carnival - hope you can find it and finish your project!

What if you put buttons on one side of each individual scarf and corresponding buttonholes on the other side. That way, it can be attached while braided, braided in any scarf combination, and be taken apart with cool buttons on each scarf?

it looks HOTT braided!  the single skinnies are kind of boring.  They're nice, but there's nothing "special" about them.  I love the colours together.
