woolly matroyshka dolls

This is another new pattern still in the works. All I need to do is photograph them and they are off to the printers.

There are three sizes of dolls: large, medium and small, but I call them: Mother, Teen and Child. They appear as if to nest, but they do not. I made a decision early on to not make them nesting. That way I would have more flexibility in embellishing them if they had a solid inside.

For the cover photo I have kept the dolls fairly simple. I have felted a set of all-red dolls and plan on more elaborate needle felting scenes and motifs to go across their dresses. I will take photos of them once I have finished them.

I am shooting for the first of September as their birth date. Stay tuned.

Happy knitting!


  1. OMG! Too, too adorable! I was so hoping you were working on a Matryoshka pattern. And the minute it is in the shop I am ordering it! I am having so much fun with the gnomes. Love playing with your creations!

  2. Thanks, Pam. I am glad you are having fun! I will keep you posted once they arrive back from the printer.

  3. Cute! I have a collection of these from our travels and how fun to knit and embellish one...or two...or more!

  4. I would love to have a collection like that! Keep me posted of the dolls you create!
