What length are you using? I use 24" for 1.5" ribbon. The correct length and the correct angles are what makes or breaks a twisted boutique. Also, if you want to try the way I do it : the pin method
and I pin it to the armrest of my couch so the angles are pinched down and stay better. I do it just like this, only I separate my loops farther than she does. I make the fronts go almost straight up and down so it turns out like this: Shelley's Bow School Base Bow.jpg
This is 24" of 1.5" Grosgrain using the pin method.
