Default BBM twisted template help

I have been struggling with the templates this afternoon. But I think I may have figured out my confusion, but want to check with the forum as it may help others.

I am fine with the folding and stitching. I then went to the Gator Bite method of creasing and tying. This is where I think my (and others who have posted) trouble begins. If you look at the picture and directions, it says to have the bow with the x side on top. If you put your thin ribbon like it looks in the last pic (pg 43), you are going around the back (under the bow) and tying off on the front (x) side which leaves the knot on the front. I am guessing that the ribbon should go around the front and tie in back.

OR...do you go around the back (under the bow), then crisscross once in front and THEN tie off in back (parallel side).

Does this make sense?

Michelle

Hi Michelle!

I answered your pm, but I thought I'd post here in case others had the same question!
I just copied the pm I sent you.

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for pointing that out.

You are correct that the knot from the top will end up in the front if you place the X side up in a Gatorbite. It is not wrong to place the ll side up, I just found that the final shaping came easier to the testers when it was creased x side up. Whichever results you like better are totally fine.

I do one of three things myself, which I didn't realize weren't in the book.

1 - Once I tie the first loop, I pull the thin ribbon to the back and tie the final knot on the back.

or

2. I tie both the first and double knot with the thin ribbon on the X side, and cover them with a larger finishing knot.

3. If the ribbon is a satin, sometimes you can do step 2 and then twist the knot to the back.

I hope this helps, but I will edit the book for future printings.

Thank you so much for your input! I hope this helps!

Thanks for your quick reply.
