Follow the links above for explanation of how to work the different parts of the lace.

There are some grey lines joining the zigzags. The pairs need to be twisted between the pins. Sometimes this happens naturally as they leave the previous shape. But if not, give them an extra twist.

This is similar to pattern 21 but is an insertion, with footsides both sides rather than headsides. The footsides are cloth footsides, which is not strictly a Torchon tradition, but I don't always follow tradition!
