I suggest you start by seeing how the pre-existing .chr files perform.
In fact, start with the default ascii.chr without restrictions.

Then for specific patterns you want JtR to focus on, you can grep the
RockYou list leaving only passwords matching those patterns.  Generate a
.chr file from that.  See how it performs.  Adjust the patterns you grep
for, and repeat.
