Q What’s the difference between cowl and cowlette?

A Size! The height of the piece is the same, but the cowl is for taller, bigger frames (I’m 5’9″, I like big drapey cowls, so I used the bigger size) while the cowlette is for more petite frames.

Q Can I use a different weight yarn?

A Sure, but the cowl will not turn out quite as big – mind you, if you want to make it for a child, a fingering weight cowlette may be very very cute!
