Those tutorials seem too complicated to me. I'll try to explain without the advantage of video:
lay five strips of bacon side-by-side (think of them as 1-5)
Fold 2 and 4 halfway back (in half, essentially)
Lay a strip of bacon across 1, 3, and 5 and return 2 and 4 to the starting position.
Fold 1, 3, and 5 halfway back and lay a strip of bacon across 2 and 4 and return 1, 3 and 5.
Repeat until you have a 5 x 5 weave. Hope that makes sense.
