The 14 face globe knot is similar in appearance to the double monkey fist knot. . It is easier to tie

Top left is a cat toy. I used 6' of cotton cord using a 1" diameter "jingle" bell core. Three times around. Enough cord left over to tie loop.

Top right is a Fob/pull/luggage ID. I used 6' of paracord. 1" diameter wooden ball core. Three times around. After tightening the knot I pulled the slack back until I reached the middle of the three plies. I tied the overhand knot to lame the loop and re-tightened the knot. Had about 9" of cord left over.

Bottom knot zipper pull/Christmas ornament used a marble for the core. Three times around. Enough cord left over to tie the loop.

Step 1:

Take the WE (Working End) in a loop to the left and back to the right under the SE (Standing End).

Step 2:

Bring WE up over two and back down to the left.

Step 3:

Bring WE to the right over two and then under, over, under

Step 4:

Bring WE to the left over SE.

Step 5:

Bring WE up under, over, under, over and back down on the left.

Step 6:

The knot is complete. Bring the WE next to the SE and add as many extra plies as desired.

Step 7:

For those of you not familiar with the tightening process I have published a separate instructable that covers that process. The title of the instructable is "14 face globe knot part 2"

<p>I am confused with the first step.</p>
<p>The photo shows the layout of the cord.</p>
<p>How do you finish it?</p>
<p>A separate instructable covers the tightening process.</p>
I dont know how to actually complete it?
<p>A separate instrucrtable covers the tightening process.</p>
Just a suggestion... Add more steps showing how to complete the knot. Someone who's not experienced in knot tying will never accomplish the knot.
<p>absolutely right... I used to macrame in my youth, so I have slight knotting experience, but these instructions were not nearly enough to teach me this. Not enough there to help me visualize the end result or the final steps</p>

In the navy we called them monkey fists <br>
<p>Is that like a Turk's head? Because they look similar? My uncle made both monkey fist and Turk's head and he was a seaman. Matter of fact, he was until he retired and his girlfriend is a captain. AND BOBY OH BOY, CAN HE KNOT AND MACRAME!</p>
<p>This is more closely related to the turk's head knot. Strictly speaking in knotical terms a turk's head knot is tied with one continuous line. It can be doubled by simply following around the knot. A monkey fist knot is tied with interlocking circles. Each circle MUST be completed with the desired number of plies before moving on to the next. Below is photo of a double monkey fist knot before tightening. </p><p>.</p>
