    This is a cosy little sweater for the baby or toddler in your life, and would make a welcome present. It features a honeycomb centre flanked by lines of cables and the tree of life pointing heavenward. It has a left-shoulder opening, making it easy to get on and off, and will look great in pastels or strong colours alike. The name Gavin is from the Welsh Gwalchgwyn, which means "White Hawk" and evokes Sir Gawain of King Arthur's Round Table.
