Seascale is worked in the round from the bottom up. Once the body is worked, stitches are picked up around the armholes and the arms are worked down to the cuff. When working the Seascale Chart on both front and back, work the chart over the stitches in between the markers. When working the fronts, the chart begins before armhole shaping ends; read the Front section all the way through before proceeding.
