An embroidery design with pinholes caused by 'pouncing'.

Pouncing was a technique which involved pricking out the outline of the pattern with a pin, attaching the page to a piece of fabric, then rubbing soot or charcoal through the pin holes so that when the page was removed, the pigment would be left in place.
