    Very nice work OP. What size core do you use for your monkey fists?

    Phoenix I made one bracelet (red and green) this past December in the Ladder Rack style you show and it is a really nice looking bracelet and it fits so well on the wrist. I like to use a 5/8" buckle when I make that style of bracelet.

    I think it wears nicely too. It's flatter than some other knots, but you get the wide band, which looks good.

    I used an "Aggie" marble in my monkey's fist. That was my first one. I need to work on my Snake knot a bit, but all in all I think it turned out nicely.

    Thank you! I usually use a 1" steel ball but I have made them with 1-1/2" steel balls on occasion.

    I used an 1" steel ball for the adjustable wearable monkey fist that I made (see my paracord projects). That's the largest size I've used so far. I want to try a golf ball next.
