    Recently I have gotten into knot tying, my wife says it’s an obsession anyway can someone identify the knot pictured below and better yet some instruction on how to tie it, it’s perfectly round.

    Any help appreciated, it looks simple but its kicking my butt!

    I think that knot is called a "monkey fist"

    Looks more like a double fisherman.

    The "monkey fist" is close but not quite it, and the "double fisherman" is more of a Cylinder knot...the one i'm looking for is more of a ball knot. Been googling it for days and still no luck, cant tellyou how many knots I have looked at and tried.
