Pattern Description:

Russian Nesting Dolls have an effect on me that many people might experience if they found themselves in a gymnasium full of puppies - too much cute to handle. Then, inside there's another doll and it's even tinier.

Some merry Matryoshkas seem like the perfect antidote to bleak, blustery winters. Cheerful colors and bright-cheeked smiles are what you need to feel cute in the cold
