Turks head stopper knot (like monkey fist)

Picture of turks head stopper knot (like monkey fist)
in this instructable i'm going to let the pictures do most of the explaining. i don't have time right now to do as much of a full tutorial as i would like, if anyone has any questions about any specific part let me know in comments and ill see if i can help

this knot is the same as the monkeys fist in function (usually decorative) but different in looks. i feel like everyone uses the monkeys fist and its a great knot but this one looks a little more complex. looks great on keychains

all this knot is, is a three lead, four bight turks head knot that is tightened down and i put one of the ends inside the knot 

this knot may have  another name but i do not know it
