Tuva Dress is worked sideways back and forth in one continuous piece from sleeve to sleeve using 1 strand of either Merino or Pure Silk. Two cables run up the first sleeve across first shoulder where they split at the neckline with one cable running along front neckline and the other cable running along back neckline. The two cables join again at the other shoulder and then continue down the second sleeve. The cables are worked in stockinette stitch while the rest of the dress is worked in garter stitch. The additional width in the skirt is created with short rows. Note that even though the dress might look to be on the short side, it will stretch and lengthen with blocking.
