No felt on the back of this one. Haven’t decided if I like it on the hat with the existing bow or not.

Here’s a smaller one with loops that are one and a half times the ribbon width.

I found the felt, so this one has a slightly smaller round of felt on the back that I can use to anchor the loops.

Here’s another cockade, this one is probably a more typical specimen.

It’s made with 1″ grosgrain ribbon and loops that are 2″. I’ve used a little over 52″. It turned out about 4 1/2″.  The loops are stitched onto a round piece of cotton batting. It’s pretty ugly, so you don’t get too see that part. Ideally I would have attached it to a similar or complementary color piece of felt, but I couldn’t find any around.
