Lisa Lloyd’s diminutive aran pullover and accompanying hat are not meant to be quick gifts. Instead, the fine cables and detailed styling on this duo call for the care and attention due a special newborn. Tiny versions of classic X-and-O cables and plaits flank a central staghorn cable. Saddle shoulders carry the sleeves’ cable pattern over the shoulders to the neckband, and small pearl buttons along the left shoulder allow the sweater to fit easily over a baby’s head. Worked in a blend of merino, silk, and cashmere, this pullover is soft as down next to baby’s skin.
