New Doll in my collection
Introducing Kaeli "doll" made for my 13 yr old grandaughter who is now Kaeli "girl".

This is my fifth doll. Kaeli girl saw 2 yr old Yael and Aaron dolls and said "I want one too grandma!" She wanted hers to be wearing a bikini. So she has that plus jeans and sandals, and a sewn and embroidered jean jacket. Otherwise she is knit from head to toe, as are her bathing suit and jeans.
She also has beaded earrings, and bracelet and a beaded choker with her name on it. I had a lot of fun making this doll. She also has purple/red streaks in her brown hair! Just like a real teenager!

dear Dream weaver, thanks for your kudos. Much appreciated.
I am a relatively new knitter (one year)...never made sox, except for the dolls and they are easy.
Will look for your work.

So cute. Love the bikini and purple polish! The dolls must be so much fun to personalize.

Question: What size needles did you use? I think I can create a pattern to make one of these for my dd, but I have the worst time with stuffing things...

So, what size needle, and what kind of yarn?

Thanks again all. The sources for the patterns are listed in an earlier post of mine (page 2 of Whatcha Knitting? under Knit Dolls by LMC...) along with my other dolls I've knitted.

No, I didn't create the patterns, just the embellishments are mine. I look at photos of my grandkids and hightlight or try to, their characteristics. Kaeli has big blue eyes, and full pink lips for instance. One photo she sent me of herself wearing a green bikini, one with some what looked like purple/red streaks in her hair...you get the picture! (She is a beautiful girl and the doll does not do her justice...but is a characture of her) Today I added a tiny piece of rolled aluminum foil for a nose piercing! I'll have to mail her soon. Want to put her in a cute box nessled in colored tissue!

I like the spelling of your Kayleigh too! (As a teen I thought of changing my Lynn to Leigh!
