I didn't buy the instructions (I haven't seen them at all), but I played around with the ribbons and I'd put two lengths of the SAME patterned ribbon wrong sides together and then begin the braiding process. It will take more ribbon but will give you the outcome you want.

The most ribbon I've used at once is 4 separate strands.

Either try that or try looping the opposite direction alternately (loop "in" and then loop "out.")

I hope that makes sense and works for you.
