Crochet cowls differ from infinity scarves in a few ways. Infinity scarves tend to be longer for wrapping, and have only one edge. Cowls can have any kind of closure or can be pulled over the head.
They tend to fit the neck more snugly than other scarves, which means they are perfect for keeping out chilly drafts. Anyone who's taken a long walk on a windy day could appreciate that!
