If I had any yarn that was similar to the color of bacon, I would make this right now! I think that these are adorable and if you decide to use them as magnets or part of a play set for kids, you cannot go wrong. The egg pattern should be included.

My husband LOVES bacon. Being of Polish descent, hes also genetically blessed to not be affected by any cholesterol issues, so bring on the kielbasa! Im not going to show him these cute little fridgies and surprise him with a set for Christmas. He uses a metal filing cabinet in his office, and these are just the thing to hold notes and things.

The bacon pattern is really neat. And I see that a link has been provided for the egg as well. I am looking for all patterns food so that I can make them for my granddaughter. Right now she is barely a year old but when she starts to play in that little kitchen my husband is making, she will be all set. Thanks for the free patterns.

How kitschy, how cute! I have just the person to make this for. I wanted the fried egg pattern, too, and I see that it has been provided below, so thanks for that! I can't believe how easy it will be to make those tasty strips of bacon. Using so little yarn for each one, I could make several pieces for sure. I like this a lot!

@patsycarpenter 0954469, Here is a link to a different egg pattern on our site that is just as adorable: --editors of AllFreeCrochet

What about the egg? Is there a pattern?
