Circle of bobbin lace basics.
The full size pattern should be 107mm across. I worked it twice.
For the 1st used DMC Brilliant Crochet Cotton, article 981-lavendar. I don't think they make it any more.  It is comparable in size to pearl 5 cotton.
I also worked it in 20/2 linen, which is comparable to #20 cordonnet. I liked the 2nd version better.
For Cordonnet #30 reduce to 71%.. 
Reduce to 63% if you want to use # 40 Cordonnet or Pearl 12.
Reduce to 41% and try tatting cotton #80.  It could then decorate a pincushion.  Just sew it onto the top of the pincushion.
See for instructions.
