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

Step 1: Basic Knot

try to follow the pictures

you could also look up turks head knot for this step

Step 2:

follow the first cord through the whole knot

Step 3: Fill and Tighten

put something like a marble or something inside knot if doing this with larger diameter rope

when tightening go slow. do only a little bit at a time 
<p>Great photos! When I got to almost the final tightening, I knotted and cut the working end and tucked it inside with the other knot. Then finished tightening, and it makes a great zipper pull!</p>
<p>Great, easy to follow photo instructions. I'm going to use these to make dog toys.</p>
<p>Nice clear instructions, thanks!</p>
