I had a customer request something similar to that ages ago, so let's see if I remember correctly. I used the figure 8 method and once I had my figure 8 made. Instead of just pulling down the loop towards the center, I flipped the loop over first and then pulled it down towards the center. Continued with the other side and finished off the bow like I normally would. I'll try to take pics of what I mean in a min. Hth and doesn't confuse you more than you already are
. Although when mine are complete the ends are not towards the back of the bow like this one. So it might be an entirely different fold than hers.
