15 pieces of thick cut bacon
How to make a bacon blanket:
Lie 8 pieces of bacon vertically side by side.
From the bottom, lay a piece of bacon over the first vertical bacon piece, under the second vertical piece, over the third vertical piece, under the fourth vertical piece, over the fifth vertical piece, under the sixth vertical piece, over the seventh vertical piece and under the eighth vertical piece. Row one is complete!
Repeat this process with the other 6 pieces of bacon, making a new horizontal row with each piece of bacon.
Bacon blanket shown in image is 7 x 8 pieces. It is recommended to do as many rows across as the length of your bacon.
Shown below is an example of a plain weave. (Although bacon needs to be side by side, this is a good example of how each row should be woven.)
