Tying a Monkeys Fist

I noticed that people were getting to this post by searching Google about tying a Monkey’s Fist.   So, I decided to tie one and take pictures.  I’m no hand model, but the knot turned out pretty well. Here is the Flickr set with instructions

    Excellent work putting these instructions together. Some of my time spent in the (US)Navy was instructing the “rookies” on how to tie the Monkey’s Fist for our heaving lines. I can’t count how many times I’ve tied that knot, so I didn’t think I’d ever forget it. That was 15+ years ago. Now I’m the Scoutmaster for my son’s (Sea Scout) troop, and was quite embaressed to discover after bragging to the boys that I could teach them how to tie a monkey’s fist that I had totally forgotten how to do it. Your instructions and photos were excellent. Thanks for saving me on that one.
