Introduction: Rope Dog Toy

Credit for this idea goes to MIK3, this is simply an adaptation.

Using 6M of climbing rope, cut it into
     4x 50cm
     1x 4m

The 4m bit makes the monkeys fist and the other 4 smaller bits make the tails. Take one tail and thread it through the gap in the monkeys fist, at each join there is a gap and in the whole knot there are 8 in total. Each tail goes in a gap and diagonally out of the opposite gap. Do this with all 4 tails so that there are 8 loose ends in total. Tighten the Monkeys Fist around it and add stopper knots, although the tails aren't actually secured to the fist they don't come out easily, and if they start to slide the stopper knots prevent it falling completely out.

Thanks for reading, any comments and suggestions are appreciated.

    I like this idea, it looks like a toy which my dog is less likely to destroy in a minute :-)
