Knitted Kokeshi Doll

I knitted this lovely Kokeshi style doll as a present for my sister who loves Japanese things. I found the pattern on Flutterby Patch's blog. It is basically a simple tube, but with clever embroidery and the cute little hands it looks like a much more complicated pattern.

I made a tiny flower to add to her head to give her a bit more detail, rather than the top knot in the original pattern.

She is so cute I will have to make myself one now!
