It is confusing! I remember when I first started reading about them, it didn't make sense to me.

I bought a bunch of ribbon from Walmart that was $1 for 5yards. I use that as my practice ribbon so I don't use up the good stuff
Do a search here and on the net for "ribbon recipes" and you should find some length formulas.

For a 4" twisted boutique bow I used 26" of 7/8" wide ribbon
