HNW - Another Blackwork question

Knowing that evenweave is a fairly modern weave, and knowing that
sometimes pouncing is/was used to put a pattern on fabric to work it, I
started thinking...

Anyone out there know when people might have started to count threads to
work a blackwork or Assisi pattern?

And...Was it a general rule of thumb to somehow (pouncing, drawing or
whatever) transfer the pattern to the material to work it in whatever
stitches fit?  Or were designs from samplers or pattern books ever
eyeballed?


Curious as ever,
