This little aran is as cute as can be -- and the lack of sleeves means that you get it done all the faster. This would look adorable on a boy or a girl, but especially on a baby boy. What about a special alternative to a baptismal gown for a christening -- many parents are now opting for a less fussy look, especially if the baby is a little older. Or how about this for a little ring-bearer who needs to look dressed up but not too girly?
