AllThingsKnotical,
  That looks great.  I never tried more than 6 strands as in the tutorial.  I'll have to make a bigger jig.
 I do like the effect when contrasting colors are added.  Tony

Thanx for that, Tony: one, it's an interesting knot.  Would love to see a tute of the multicoloured one, or is it just following round in colours; and two, I've been dying to see how those damn jigs are used.  I have seen them on various sites, but my ageing mind never got around exactly what use they were.  So now I know.

Capellagroup,
  You  figured it out.  I used a 3 cords, a separate color cord  for the three under over, over under sequences shown in the tutorial.    The opposite faces of the knot in  this case are red black, red yellow, and black yellow.   Cheers, Tony

Since you like the Split Face Monkey Fist, ABOK 2207, you might also like the Double Monkey Fist, ABOK 2206.
