Default Korker ribbon has anyone used larger ribbons?

I am new to all this and had started making a few korker bows using the 3/8th ribbon. was wondering if anyone had tried using larger ribbons like 7/8th and if so do they come out okay? I was wanting to buy a ribbon with a pattern on it but its 7/8th in size. thanks for any help.

I think it would look funny with 7/8". You'd have to use a bigger dowel as well to even make the korks look ok. It may work, but I don't think it would look right in a bow. Then again, you will never know until you try!

I tried it once to make a korker for a teddy bear. Took lots of ribbon to get the effect I was going for.

I used 5/8" once for St. Patrick's Day korker streamers and they looked ok initially but it looks like the curl is falling out.

However, if you starch it heavily or use shorter pieces, I think you'd be ok with 5/8" but probably not 7/8".

Oh, for the 5/8" I used the same dowels I use for the 3/8" that I got at Michaels.

I tried it. Bleh, it was a big fat fail for me.
