Isabella Beeton presented this pattern in her 1870 “Book of Needlework.”

From the book:

“Materials: For a large couvrette, Messrs. Walter Evans and Co.’s Boar’s Head cotton No. 8; for pincushion covers, mats, and such-like small articles, Boar’s Head cotton No. 16 or 20.

A pattern of this description is most useful, as it can be converted to so many purposes. Counterpanes, couvrettes of every description, mats, pincushions, and a thousand other things can all be arranged from the design.

Each circle is made separately, and joined to the others.“
