I learned to chart machine knitting patterns in 1974, using Studio's Silver Knitting Book. The method in this book is very similar to that used by Japanese publishing companies. It uses the shaping formula of stitches-rows-times, which I prefer, since it is the formula used in most written patterns.
The written patterns, including schematics are already available in the Free Patterns section, so they will not be repeated here. Download them and print them out, along with these charts. The Dolman chart shows both sizes, but the Men's Tuck Stitch Pullover only shows the smallest size in chart form because there was too much information to fit on one chart. I usually chart each size separately to keep the confusion down.
