Default Different center knots

In looking through pictures of other people's work to get ideas, I have seen some different looking center knots. I have not figured out how they are made, and I feel silly because I'm sure its very simple. I am attaching pics if a couple examples. One kind looks especially full and fancy. The other looks very round. Can anyone help me out?

i read some sellers fold the edges of the ribbon and then make the knot.i tried myself and they are really cute.
That looks similar to the first picture. I am really not sure. You cannot do that with 3/8 though!

They kinda look like the same knot to me, just one pulled tighter than the other using the method Ali posted.

I like the second pictures knots better. What size ribbon should you use on that kind of knot?

Don't feel bad, i'm STILL trying to figure that out too.

I use 3/8" and sometimes 5/8". I think 3/8" works best, IMO

How do you fold the edges? Do you fold both sides toward the center, or fold it in half?

I use 3/8" for all my knots. When I am in a pinch I fold my 7/8" ribbon in half, but I don't like the bulk...

Looks to me that the first one is doing just that...using larger ribbon, tying a knot, then folding the ribbon that comes out of the knot part in half...then pulling tight. The second one looks like they are using larger ribbon, probablly 7/8, folding it in half and making a knot...but not pulling it hard...just enough to hold.

I actually just did a knot today that looks alot like the second. I used 3/8's ribbon and just used two layers. Since it was thicker it stayed more neat like those pictures.
