So I made these last year for my little sister for xmas, and another post reminded me that I should share. I actually googled several pictures of actual bacon and worked off of the picture on where to make the fat, lighter meat and dark meat. It is all free form, no pattern. I just started with a row of off white, then kept adding layers and working with different stitches to create a wavy look; everything from a single crochet to a double treble. I like how it turned out all wavy and rippled, like actual bacon. This made such an awesome and easy gift.

Hahahaha I was flipping through the thumbnail pics on this board, saw this, and said to myself, "Hey that looks just like bacon!"  And it really IS bacon......Although I do not eat bacon, I might wear some crochet bacon.  You did such a great job on this!  Thanks for sharing your work  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

No way! Best idea ever! I know you created it beforehand, but it totally reminds me of lady gaga's meat dress. Your hat and scarf are so much more cozy and not creepy. Good stuff!

This is awesome!

I was wondering what brands/colors of yarn you used to make it since the colors look PERFECT!

i think i ended up finding all the colors in paton's wool, but in the picture its red heart super saver for the ivory, the pink is paton's wool (not sure what color name, but found at joanns), and the darkest red is red heart eco ways in cinnabar.

Thanks!  My friend has requested a variation on a bacon scarf and this is a good place for me to start with choosing the colors for it!

A friend of mine has just finished her very first crochet project, I sent her a link to this. Her boyfriend is getting this for Christmas, apparently.... He saw the photo and his first words were 'that is so fricking cool!'

So there may well be a guy walkin around Helsinki, Finland wearing a rasher of bacon around his neck this time next year Smiley
