This isn't a great looking site, but it works well enough, it's what I used to tell me how to tie one for my practise Poi

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Monkey fist knots are needy. I recommend unless you want that oh-so-cool effect of that ball of fire, you should get a few weights instead of making the moneky fist knot.
