Introduction: Simple Monkey Fist Jig

Wrapping the cord your fingers is an easy way to make a monkey fist. The drawback is that there is a lot of excess cordage that slows the tightening process

I prefer to use a simple bit of coat hanger wire bent to accommodate the core you are using

I am using the "Royal Navy" monkey fist method for this instructable
