Knittingwise, I've done about 1 and a third of the charts and I've just finished embroidering the first complete panel.
Yep, all those colourful little blobs next to Australia are the individually french-knotted island clusters of Polynesia. They don't show up on the chart I'm afraid, the whole point being that they would be smaller than a knit stitch, so you have three options
a) Find a map and go insane trying to get them as accurately placed as possible (In the absence of an atlas, I've found Wikipedia pretty useful.)
b) Forget the map and just embroider them on willy-nilly. Go crazy. Make pretty patterns. Maybe spell out some secret message in morse code.
c) Do the sensible thing and ignore the islands completely.
Ok, the original pattern is available online at Vogue, and my new charts - fingers crossed - should be downloadable here:
