Got my first bowie today and am learning how to tie it. It has two sides (pretty cool) and I am curious about something.
Imagine the sides are red (A) and black (B). When you get to the last step where you bring the long end behind the bowshape you've made from the shorter end and pass it through the loop, what side is facing forward? You know how a bowtie is actually two batwing shapes, one in front of the other? Say I have red showing, what color is showing on the batwing behind the primary one? Is it black or red?
On the front part, the outside of the loop will be red. On the back part, the outside of the loop will be black.
This is assuming you tie it the normal way and don't put any kind of twist into it.
