    Default Monkey Fist Jig

    Monkey Fist Jig
    Here is a bent bit of clothes hanger. Size it to the diameter of the core you are covering. This is for a marble. MUCH easier than tying around your fingers and less cord required (I have fat fingers). Tony

    Gradually take out the slack by pulling one turn around the core at a time. When one set of turns is tightened go on to the next. Do Not try to take out all the slack in one go. It will take several turns of tightening to neatly tighten the knot.

    Thank you. It is nice to be retired and have time to pursue different aspects of knotting.
