*Free* Pattern: Simple bacon

These two simple bacon pieces whip up in minutes!

A friend of mine recently purchased the Skillet and Eggs set for her kitchen decor and asked me if I could make bacon strips to add on!

As you can see, the eggs need to be sewn into place and the bacon strips added.  I will post the finished picture after she brings the item back for me to complete!

If you haven’t tried the Skillet and Eggs pattern, go make that first by clicking here!  Or if you’d rather me make it for you – no problem!  Go to my Shop!

Now to make some bacon!

Note – I made two different bacon strips.  Both have a good side and a bad side, which makes them suitable for sewing projects, but not (in my opinion anyway) as pretend play food.

Skill Level: Beginner

Techniques used: completed with sc and dc in rows


  • Crochet hook 3.5
  • Dark red medium worsted weight yarn
  • White yarn
  • Yarn needle


ch = chain

sc = single crochet

hk =hook

ea = each

FO = fasten off

sl st = slip stitch

st= stitch

dc= double crochet


Bacon One

Row 1: With dark red  – Ch 14, sc in 2nd ch from hk and in ea ch down (13)

Row 2: Sc in 13, sl st and FO

Sl st white from the back of the bacon strip to the front, zigzagging down the length. Sc in the end st, 2sc in the corner.  sl st, FO.  Weave in all the ends.  If you pull the ends quite tightly as you weave them in, it will help to curl up the bacon.


Bacon Two:

Row 1: With dark red – Ch 14, sc in 2nd ch from hk and in next 3 ch, 2dc, sc in 4, 2dc, sc in last 3 ch

Row 2: ch 1 turn, sc in 3, dc in 2, sc in 4, dc in 2, sc in last 4.  sl st and FO

Sl st white between rows 1-2, from the back to the front, following the slight curve created by the double crochets and continue the entire bacon length.  2sc in the corner.  sl st, FO and weave in your ends.


OK, meat-eaters, enjoy yourselves some crochet bacon!  I’ll be over here with my crochet tofu instead!
