One Torchon lace design (with Torchon stitch, Roseground, small hearts in half stitch and gimps) is varied to 10 different patterns. The author plays with shapes, colours, sizes and uses. Amongst others, we find a handkerchief edge, a table runner, a rectangular and a hexagonal insertion, edgings for round and oval mats, a square mat and hearts with handles which – filled with sweets and little presents – are meant as decoration for the typical Danish Christmas tree.
