Square I-2

Square I-2 is the last square for which directions are given for the Granny Square Sampler Afghan in Better Homes and Gardens Crocheting & Knitting, and, as it happens, it is the last square that I finished.

After much trial and error, this is my final square:

Join with sl st to first trc made. Fasten off.
