Matroyshka means 'little matron' in Russian. Matroyshka dolls are often referred to as Russian nesting dolls. Although these dolls do not nest, they are knit in different sizes but similar shapes to appear as if they could. Have fun creating a collection of dolls in coordinating colors with whimsical detail!
