I agree about the loops needing to be skinny. When you are bringing your ribbon to the marked middle, make sure that they look like a "skinny" 8. I finally discovered this after much frustration. It makes the world of difference. And, I too, use the gator bite to tie off (I actually use the crochet thread, though). Good luck!
