Oh no, I don't think Swiss cheese at all. It should be yummy and soft in the Alpaca. I wouldn't increase the strands on the cowl. I think that'll be too thick although you'll be able to tell when you...

The stitches are going to be looser and the knit fabric not as dense. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but you should be aware of it.
You may even prefer it.

If you use the bulky yarn on the same size needles, the cowl and wrap will turn out lacier (a looser knit) than they would with the super bulky. You may or may not like this...

Sure thing. You have 216sts and 3 on each end are in garter stitch so that leaves 210sts for the chart. The chart shows 15sts and 210 divided by 15 is 14 so there must be 14 repeats of the chart.

Very pretty capelet.
The chart that you're to follow next is called M.1. So no increases at this point. You start the chart at the bottom right with a k2tog then knit 13sts and repeat the chart...
