Matryoshka: Dolls With A Nesting Instinct

Russian nesting dolls, also known as a Matryoshka, have an iconic design and history. I won’t even try to describe it when Wikipedia has done such a nice job already. But I will share some links if you want your own. First, I’ve also found a few knitting patterns and craft tutorials!
