Dusty Rose as it was designed with both squares and rectangles, both knitted and crocheted squares from many pairs of helping hands looked like this.
When last you saw Dusty Rose it was at this stage. It's growing as it's edged and joined. More adjustments were needed then I initially thought, as some of the squares/rectangles had more stretch to them.
And here it is finished. I debated about an edge and decided just basic straight single crochet rows, and though it needed something to make it pop a bit, so went with the pink for the last 2 rows instead of staying with dusty mauve color. A few alterations made on placement, one wasn't intentional, as I carried it to the chair to work on it, joined one section the opposite direction I wanted...didn't realize it until other pieces were added.....soooooooooo it's slightly different.
