You wouldn't actually be threading the bacon strips--by folding back strips you'd be laying a horizontal slice on top of alternating vertical slices. I guess I could have been a little more clear...you'd be starting with the center horizontal slice and continuing two above and two below for a 5 x 5 weave. For example, using the photo above, assume the hand is on slice 4. You would fold slice 2 and 4 back up toward the sausage package and then lay a slice across 1, 3, and 5. When you return 2 and 4 to their position, you have "threaded" a slice without the hassle of actually threading. Repeat the process by folding 1, 3, and 5 up toward the sausage package and laying a slice across 2 and 4.
It's a lot simpler to do than explain :)
