Baker Island is worked in the round from the bottom up. When working the body chart on round 28, you will need to remove and replace the locking EOR marker in order to work the final C2/2/2LP. If you choose to place markers identifying the pattern repeat, you will need to remove and replace each marker in order to work the C2/2/2LP cross that the marker divides.
