Blisco (sweater) is a fingering sweater, perfect for spring, which has a very beautiful colorwork pattern on the lower body. The sleeves and round neck are finished in 2×2 ribbing. The construction is bottom-up: we start by knitting the bottom of the body in the round, then the front and back are knitted back and forth one after the other. The shoulders are joined together and the stitches of the neckline are picked-up for a 2×2 ribbing finish.
The stitches for the sleeves are then picked-up to knit them one after the other. The 2×2 ribbing is made in contrasting colour.
