Monkey’s Fist Juggling Balls

Several weeks ago I purchased a doorstop made using the “Monkey’s Fist” knot from the Chatham Historical Dock and became rather intrigued by this decorative knot. Using the “Animated Knots” App that I purchased for my Smartphone I taught myself how to tie this knot and have managed to create 3,4,5 and 6 strand versions. The knot looks best when a ball is placed inside the knot. The photo below shows three overtightened “Monkey’s Fists” which make great juggling balls.
