I agree- that is one of the harder bows to master and it is definitely easier with stiffer ribbon- and just keep practicing... I had to watch a million videos to get them to somewhat look good, and i only make them now by special request or for my dd because honestly- I cannot do them quick enough to make it worth my while... I mainly make other bows that I am better at and quicker at...when all else fails, you can always purchase a template to help you (although some still find it difficult with the templates)
