Default Figure 8 question.....please help!

I am trying ot learn the figure 8 method, but my bows are not turning out right, and I have a question.

Once you make the figure 8 and are bringing the two side loops in to form the 4 final loops to the bow, do the two sides overlap each other or lay next to each other? So the wrong side of the bow (the two parallel lines, not the X) are the lines supposed to lay next to each other or ontop of one another?

Clear as mud? lol.

Thanks!

Thank you! I tried having them overlap 100% and not at all and my bows keep coming out wonky...I will try doing it about 1/2 to 3/4!
