Do some with, and some without. And see what sells best. I like to do a little bit of everything.

I also like to switch it up. I make some with the knot and some without. The ones with the knot tend to sell more for me. HTH

I do some with and some without. I don't really have a preference but it really depends on the type of bow I suppose.

i'm in mccomb right now. thanks everyone for your opinions. before i started making bows...when myself and a friend would go to the little boutique to by bows she would pick thru all the bows trying to find the most perfect knot in the center and sometimes she would not buy any because they weren't to her liking...they looked fine to me. guess i'm just scared to have someone do that to my bows lol

90% of the time I use a knot. I just vary the size of the ribbon I use based on how complex the bow is. If it is simple and needs a little pop, I make a bigger one or use 2 colors. If it is really busy, I use smaller ribbon.

I usually use a knot, except on pinwheels. To me the knot makes them look fancier.
