Hi jmthomason3 9559109, The chart is presented as a PDF, so you will need to download Adoble Reader is you don't already have it.

The chart is blank when I click. How is it accessed?

@tinkerbell01 4390838, The chart for this project is listed in the Materials list. It is the last item in the list called "Chart." Please click there. I hope this helps! --editors of FaveCrafts

I really like the Elf Christmas Ornament, Pumpkin Pin, Star Snowman Ormament and Santa Claus Ornament patterns but it says to follow the graphs but they are not there. I have the Cat and Basket Plastic Pin, Easter Bunny Plastic Pin and the graphs are included in the pattern. Is there a reason that the graphs are not included in the ones mentioned in my first sentence. Can you please respond to my question. Thank you for your time.
