Default What lenght ribbon for loopies???

Ok, So I finally have conquered loopies..I use 20 inch long ribbon for a 4 inch wide bow. Now here is my next question, What to use (lenght of ribbon) for a smaller bow like a 2 1/2 - 3 inch bow..I could try and figure it out...but maybe someone can share their thoughts.

Thanks, Rachel and Rachelle

yep, that was me. I can't wait to see your bow! Also, I didn't put measurements for the spikes because I usually V-cut them after the bow is done to make sure they're even.

THANKS A MILLION MELISSA!!! I finally finished 2 sets of hairbows..sad to say they were sitting in my "to finish" box for about a year waiting on me to learn loopies....I had Rachelle wear one set already! I will take pictures and post them soon!! 4 inch bows I have to do 2 piggytails, but I love the smaller bows with all the layers!! So I am off to work on that!! Thanks!!!!
