I hate translating charts to written instructions

I just thought I'd say that.  I am still doing it but damn I hate it.  It is so easy to make mistakes.
I will never do it again after this pattern.

I see it as being like taking the mona lisa and putting it through a shredder.
One line is one shredded bit of information.  A chart is like a cartoon rendering, not as pretty but the essence is there.

OK, back to translating.  I hope I don't make too many errors.  I'm tempted to offer this pattern with the disclaimer, "The written instructions are jacked.  Use charts."
