I use 3/8" ribbon to make 1.75" basic bow. Length of the ribbon: 4loops x 2" + 2tails x 1"=12".

Here is the link of the bow:

Use 7/8" ribbon to make 2" basic bow. Length would be:
4loops x 2.25" + 2tails x 1"=11".

Here is the link of the bow (2 basic bows stacked together):

Use 7/8" ribbon to make 3" basic bow. Length:
4loops x3.5" +2tailsx1.5"=17".

The bow looks like this (the base is a basic bow):

Different length makes the bows look different. There is no rule for this. Just use a piece of ribbon and fold the bow. If the like it, write down the number (bow size, loop length and tail length) so you can refer later.

By the way, I'm in Chicago.
