Century's End Granny Square

Image of Century's End Granny Square Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This square is slightly bigger than the squares I usually make but you can decrease the size by using a smaller hook. I know technically that the year 2000 is the actual last year of the 20th century but since this is the last year of the century that begins with a 1, and this is the last square I am designing this year, I decided to call this square Century's End.
