BERT Baby Blanket

Did you join in with the latest Friday Night Mystery Knit ?
If you did - I hope you enjoyed the fun :) 

When I was knitting mine I realised that this would make a really good blanket pattern as it looks great on both sides. 

I haven't quite finished yet - 
but it looks lovely and I wanted to share with you .........
