The Jalie is definitely trimmer than the KS; that's one of my bugaboos w/KS knit patterns -- the armsceye tends to be kinda low and baggy, although the twinset cardigan is less so than other KS tops.

This twinset came out really nice. I dunno, but the shoulder/armhole/ sleeve cap area looks much better constructed than the KwikSew to me - a trimmer fit, isn't it?

Very nice! It looks super on you!

Beth...I used my serger for 90% of the sewing; the only things I did on the regular machine was the seam on the band, the double-needle hems and the button holes. But a narrow zig-zag stitch on a conventional machine works fine for most knits.

Hey, a beautiful cardigan, love the fabric and a really helpful (and brand new) review! Wow :)

Great twinset. I too am going to order this pattern now. One question--did you sew this fabric on a serger or SM?

Your twinset looks so sharp. Excellent job and great review comparing the 2 patterns. Thanks.

Very nice! I just looked in my stash and I have both of these Jalie patterns! Thank you for the comparison as I have the KS too and have never made either. I'll opt for the Jalie.

What a great looking twin set, Lisa! I don't see how the fit could be improved; it is perfect on you.

Very nice set--this is a good color on you too. This pattern is next to trace. I'm glad you compared it to 2948 which I love. Thanks!!
