Default Re: How to make this bow? What´s the name of it?

The knot is made from a wide ribbon, either a 5/8 or a 7/8, which keeps more of the center tight, thereby keeping the angle at which the loops flare more acute.

The loops may not have been fluffed, or pulled vertically to create the more "perky" version of the TBB.

The center has only two creases, which makes it easier to tie tighter.
Thanks, very helpful!!!
