Title: Simple monkey fist jig

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
