I like the way it shows different ways it can come out, and how that is ok.

I’ve seen some YouTube videos on how to make the Monkey First knot, but I never quite got the hang of it. The instructions that Courtney presented in this video, however, made it much easier to learn how to make the knot. 5/5 stars!
