You can post pictures if you need to!
If you look at page 15 and 16 in the book it should cover the problem you are having. It all comes down to a creasing/shaping technique.
On page 16 there is a yellow bow, one loop is flipped forward, the other is flipped towards the back. The forward one gives you that curvy part. How long is the ribbon you are using? I will make one here the same way.
You'll get the best results if the creasing is symmetrical. You said you normally take a few stitches and pull it to gather the ribbon - do you have a picture of that? Maybe I can give you a few pointers to try.
You'll get it!
