- Knots, Bends,Ties
- Hitches,Loops, Mooring knots
- Shortenings, Grommets, Selvagees
- Lashings, Seizings, Splices
- Fancy knots and rope work

Just came across this great how to video on YouTube showing how to make a DIY Monkey Fist Knot Keychain. If you have some paracord or 550 cord leftover from your last projects, why not give this knot a try yourself. A monkey fist knot looks complex and is sure to attract attention. Try using a marble for the core as an alternative to the ball bearing shown.
