I recently made my own Kokeshi doll, and want to share it with everyone :yay I’m addicted to them now, you can change the colours and hairstyles to whatever you want! It’s a really easy pattern, but sometimes I may not describe something correctly, so lemmie know if anything is confusing :s

I suggest you some kinda weight at the bottom. Although she'll have a flatten bottom, she might still be a bit top-heavy :)
I used some random DK wool I had hanging around, and a 2.5mm hook.
You can put whatever you want in her hands, ofcourse, but i managed to get lil paper roses, so made a mini-basket for the pink one :D

I love them! I went to the New Year's celebration at the JANM in L.A. and saw crochet books with patterns for them and haven't gotten around to them. I'm making at least one! TFS :manyheart:manyheart
