CopperItUp is knitted from top to bottom in one piece. The top becomes wider by increasements (M1R/L) and is finished with a bind off in rib. Finally, a cord of any kind is added, either a thick cord or the cord can be knitted in the same materials as the top. CopperItUp has a gauge/tension which can be easily matched with other yarns (e.g. cotton) than the selected one.

I’ve used 4 different types of yarn wrenches named Gepard Shine Bright to make the stripes on my top. The top (in small) weighs approx. 0.082 lbs. i.e. which is approx. 2 (2) 2 (2) identical yarn wrenches (0.055 lbs. = about 410.1 feet).
There are many good yarn alternatives, as mica can scratch a little - for example, it can be replaced with ordinary cotton yarn with a similar tension.
