Matryoshka Doll by Sharon Maher

My Creation

I bought a magazine in England called Yarn Forward (Nov 2010 issue) because I saw a picture of this doll on the cover. I knew I wanted to knit her and I did. It didn't take very long. However, the pattern said to knit the doll using two strands of yarn held together. I found this impossible on the small needles called for so just used one strand. One part of the doll (the base) called for knitting 3 strands together! Forget it! (I struggled and used just 2 strand for this) However, the doll came out just fine the way I did it and I love the design. I also knitted a half sized doll by adaptin the pattern.

I don't think the size differed too much by using only 1 strand of yarn. According to the pattern she should be 12 1/2inches tall. My doll is almost 12 inches tall.
