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.
