Makin' Bacon Scarf

By: Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller

Makin' Bacon ScarfHere's a scarf that's truly bacon inspired. For this adorable knit craft, follow the simple pattern and you'll love the results. Enjoy your Makin' Bacon Scarf this winter!

This would be a fantastic gift for the bacon lover in your life. It's just subtle enough! Someone might not even realize it's a bacon-inspired knit scarf pattern. You could make it in other colors if you love the look of the wavy pattern but don't love the bacon theme. It's a cozy knitting pattern that will keep you or your loved one warm this winter! It's a great introduction to wavy knits as well.

  • Circular Knitting Needle: 5mm [US 8] 36”.
  • Yarn needle

Gauge: 18 sts and 24 rows = 4” in ripple pattern.
Check your gauge: Use any size needles to obtain the gauge.


  • With A, cast on 272 sts.
  • Row 1: Knit.
  • Row 2: K1, purl across to last st, k1.
  • Row 3: K1, *[k2tog] 3 times, [yo, k1] 6 times, [k2tog] 3 times;
  • repeat from * across to last st, k1.
  • Row 4: Knit.
  • Repeat Rows 1–4, changing color as in following color sequence:
  • Work 8 more rows with A (for a total of 12 A-colored rows), [4
  • rows with B, 4 rows with A] 2 times, 4 rows with B. Bind off.

Weave in ends. Steam block gently, if desired.


The scarf is worked from long edge to long edge. Work back and forth on circular needle, as if working on straight needles.

I need this converted to crochet, please! I want to make it for my son's birthday! Thank you!!!

can this be adapted into crochet ?

I am either going to have to learn to knit or figure out how to do this in crochet - my niece will love it!

i am thinking...try a wave ripple pattern which would measure out the length needed (use afghan count for wave ripples). i also asked if this could be adapted to crochet. my knitting skills would make the bacon look not so bacon

I am so making this for my adopted soldier now a friend that will be going back over to Afghanistan He loves BACON and it is not allowed over there. I think he will enjoy this! Thanks for the pattern.

Looks cool, if I had the right length of circular needle I'd have myself wearing bacon in no time

That looks cool, but sort of difficult looking. If I get really ambitious I might try it.
