Hi there! Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be an assembly diagram available. Hopefully someone who has made the pattern has some great tips for troubleshooting this! I apologize for the inconvenience. -Dana from FaveCrafts

This is stunning! Who knew I could use my yarn and my bead collections?! I can just imagine all the beautiful color combinations I will come up with.

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.
