This little Matryoshka doll is a quick toy knitting project if you are looking for something to knit this weekend, and she could be used as a pincushion or to decorate your home.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the doll, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 4 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are worked flat on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the strap of the head scarf (under the chin) which is a single crochet chain. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. For colour-work, you will need to know how to knit stripes (i.e change colour at the end of a row).


  • A pair of straight 3.75mm knitting needles (US 5)
  • A 3.75mm (US F/5) crochet hook
  • DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight); less than 50g in each colour
  • Toy filling
