From the Project Gutenberg version of Exercises in Knitting by Cornelia Mee.

Since "bring the wool forward, slip 1 the reverse way" seems to mean "yarn over, slip one", and that is currently more commonly seen as a brioche stitch, this may be mapped more efficiently using brSl. But that will be another map.

The instructions call for "3 colours of German wool", and state that "Four quarters of each colour make the round." Once all 12 wedges are made (and presumably bound off on the last repeat of row 14), "sew the two sides together, and make it up with a button in the centre."

Shown with a cast-on count of 20 stitches.
