Free Pattern Tuesday – Bacon Scarf


Everyone loves Bacon. Okay they should love Bacon. This Bacon Scarf should make all the Bacon lovers out there happy while keeping them warm and toasty. This pattern should be a little free form so if you don’t know what I am going for, it’s okay. If you get completely flustered, let me know and I will help you as best I can.

  1. I love this, I recently decided to make my niece a Bacon scarf, but the only ones out there were a huge intarsia chart or they were just striped. This one has great texture and is only two colors, but the two.strands together rows are genius. I am working on it with a brownish red chunky yarn and an off white tan-ish Homespun. It’s looking great, ill have to email you a picture when its done! There’s several site which have compiled Bacon scarf patterns, and your pattern isn’t on any of them, but then this one is much more recent. Great work, I love it!!!!!


  2. Omg! I love this :-)
    I am vegan and I have a niece who is OBSESSED with bacon and we joke all the time how she’d join me in veganism if bacon wasn’t meat! I am making us matching scarves for Christmas
    You are awesome!


  3. Hi Wendy, I have a couple of questions regarding this pattern. I love it btw, I love that it looks like real bacon rather than just a ripple scarf in red and white.
    First question- Do you only need one ball of each color of yarn? You don’t list a quantity in your supply list.
    Second question- In rows 10 and 18, you say to switch to hook E, but your supply list calls for a G and H hook, no mention of an E.
    Could you clarify this to me in an email please? I really appreciate it. Also about how long is the scarf once its done?
    Thanks again,


  4. Oh my god this is so cool! It isn’t like a lot of other bacon patterns that just have stripes or whatever, this ACTUALLY looks like a strip of bacon. I think I’ll have to make this for my meatatarian friend for her birthday, haha. Great pattern!


  5. Oh my goodness! Love, love, love this bacon scarf! I was asked to make a bacon scarf for a fb friend, but all I could find was striped ripple patterns…blah! This fits the bill perfectly!!! Your work is amazing!!
    Thank you!

  6. I made this scarf for my bf for his birthday tomorrow.. Cant wait for him to get it! It looks SO REAL. Wish I could post a pic :) thanks for the pattern :)


  7. Thank you so much for the pattern? How many skeins does it take of each color and do you just change the color sequence at random? Thanks a lot!


    • I used less than one of each. If you want your bacon to be your own individual scarf, feel free to change the colors at random. I wrote down in the pattern when I changed them.



  8. SO AWESOME! I had some of Vanna’s Choice new Brick color, and it looks super awesome! Once I take better pics I’ll send them. Next one I’m going to do the “curly fat” rows on both sides. It’s super great as it is, but I love that you can make a whole bunch and have them all be slightly different. Just like real slices of bacon!

    I also wanted a “fluffier” fabric, so I used the hook size suggested on the skein (J) for the single yarn rows, and a size N for two. Not that I needed to use one that big to handle both strands, but I like the way the bigger stitches look placed in the middle of the bacon. :)
