So I was sitting at work the other day thinking about some easy but fun scarves I could make for Christmas presents when I thought I could make a bacon scarf for my boyfriend. I clicked around and found inspiration from several places online. So I found a free pattern online for a wavy scarf and grabbed some leftover yarn. I finished it in about two hours (had to keep hiding it from my boyfriend). It actually started to "seize up" in a few places because I was using two different kinds of yarn, but I am super happy about that because it actually makes it look like cooking bacon. I plan to wrap it in plastic wrap, make a label for it and make it look like a package of bacon from the store, then wrap it in gift wrap and stick it under the tree.



Again, this was inspired by other crocheters out there, so this is by no means original, but I am proud of it. It was definitely a great use for my scrap yarn.

Thanks! I was worried when I started it that it would not look like bacon, but it sounds like it worked! Thanks again!

That is such a great creative (and easy) idea!  Looks just like bacon too!

Wow! This scarf looks awesome! If my boyfriend got what appeared to be a massive package of bacon for Christmas, I believe he might start wearing a scarf...now if only we didn't live in Texas....

I also love the plastic wrap/gift wrap idea...how clever Smiley
