In the regular monkey fist knot the Working End bends at a severe angle when it changes from one phase to the next. This causes visible indications of the transition (a and b).

In the Royal Navy Monkey Fist a gentler angle is used. This leaves no indication of the transition

The Royal Navy monkey fist has both ends tmerging from  the fist at the same spot
If you prefer to have the two strands emerging from the the fist at different points so that you can do knotwork below the fist that is no problem
