Where is the assembly diagram?

Knitting is my preference. While I can do both, crocheting uses too much wrist action that aggravates the inflammation in my joints. However, personal choice determines what you love to do, BOTH are lovely crafts that produce different styles and results.

I like knitting beetter

The directions say to see assembly diagram. I don't see one. Where should I look for the diagram.
