Pattern is written in North American crochet terms.
Gauge does not have to be exact.
Ch1 after each turn counts as first stitch except on border.
Do not carry yarn up sides for each colour change. Cut yarn, tie off, and weave in ends before starting the border.
Try changing the colour of the border to a primary colour or a colour to match your baby's room.
