The thing is after I tie it once, I hold it tight and take it out of the gator bite. Then I adjust the bows while still holding it tight. (If I let go at this point the whole thing would open). After I think the loops are even, I tie it a second time - doing it kind of like how you would if you were wrapping a bow on a present - holding down the center with one finger as you make the next knot with your free fingers and pulling tight. I am not bothered if it isn't the tightest at that point since I sew it right after. As long as it has the pinch formation in the center.
