decorative knot
That's not too difficult... The only tricky step is to adjust it.

This knot was created to give weight to the end of a rope. I think it's interesting.

You can attach it to your cell phone, pendrive, or backpack... You can make a keychain... Or hang it in your ear, neck... :o)

  • How to make a misc. Monkey Fist - Step 1
    Step 1

    I bought 1 meter of string (not nylon), and 2 beads (seriously: just two).
    It gave material for two attempts, and
    I've paid less than 50 cents

    So let us go

  • How to make a misc. Monkey Fist - Step 2
    Step 2

    Make three loops, not crossing the string. (You can wrap it in your hand)

  • How to make a misc. Monkey Fist - Step 3
    Step 3

    Pass the end through the middle and make three turns round the first turns

  • How to make a misc. Monkey Fist - Step 4
    Step 4

    Adjust it

  • How to make a misc. Monkey Fist - Step 5
    Step 5

    Pass the end though the middle again, and make three turns wraping the turns of steps "3" and "4"

  • How to make a misc. Monkey Fist - Step 6
    Step 6

    In this point you insert the bead in the "nest" formed by the wire.

    -> end of easy part <- lol

  • How to make a misc. Monkey Fist - Step 7
    Step 7

    Now you'll have to tight the strings.

    Begin tighting little by little from the middle to the ends.

    If you do not lose your temper, you'll get there.

  • How to make a misc. Monkey Fist - Step 8
    Step 8

    There'a another version in which you make a knot in one end and stuck it into the rest. In that case you'll have to tight this end first, after the middle and at last the other (free) end. It's more difficult and you'll have just one string attached to the monkey's fist
