I am trying to figure out exactly what the difference is between a shawl and a shawlette?
Also what about the difference between a Scarf and a Scarflette?
Thank you

Hi KP,

Welcome to KH! Typically a shawlette is a smaller sized shawl. Sometimes designers will add an -ette suffix to indicate a smaller variant of a common article or garment. It's entirely subjective and I don't think there any official guidelines. It's really up to the pattern designer.

Hope that helps!
