Its done, cast off and awaiting blocking. I am very happy with how this turned out.
The pattern is Zig Zag Baby Blanket - free of charge on Ravelry
The yarn used was Rico Essential Cotton DK in 10 colours
I cast on 209 stitches - 12 repeats and an 8 stitch side border, I also work the borders in garter stitch rather than seed stitch
So without further ado
