Among the online sources on PATTERNS look for these, which have torchon patterns:

Dillmont LA DENTELLE AUX FUSEAUX  Basic torchon course in French, but has fairly large # of patterns.  It uses verbal instructions, which are like reading code.  Don't try to use it for learning.  Use it for patterns.

Is there an errata sheet for Bridget Cook's The Torchon Lace Workbook?  Running into issues in a pattern for a hanky edging I'm working on. Thank you
