Paracord Monkey Fist. My Opinion: I got so so close. I actually ended up using a youtube tutorial but I started with this. I couldn't get it tightened properly and eventually gave up... I wasted a good amount of string and ending up simply throwing it across the room in frustration....
If you wrap it around a lead ball instead of your fingers, you have yourself a weapon to keep in your purse. :)
