Default TBB Question??

I just ordered the LPL kit today. I am (admittedly) not a bow maker - I've made a couple for my daughter (one much better than the rest! ) but I'd like to offer more than crochet HB's and FOE HB's to match tutu outfits.

When I look at some of the awesome bows I see, there is a style of bow I prefer. I like the way this one looks, With the loops sitting nice and "upright" and really squared off:

I don't like this one so much, it looks kind of flat:

Is this a technique thing? Does the BBM template "do" one over the other?

Its all about how you shape your bows. I've learned that from posting pictures of the ones I've made. You have to shape your loops to have them sit a certain way. I would watch some youtube videos to see how its done. Then if you want your bow to look a certain way find an image of a really nice TBB to help you get the look you want. The templates seem to help you have even loops when making your bows. HTH!

I use a template to be sure that everything is even, then the rest is how I shape and manipulate the loops.

The tbb is new to me as well, and my tbbs got 100 times better once I started using a template---come out uniform every time, and I don't have to fuss as much in shaping and getting the twist even.
