Step 2: The Monk’s robe should have long bell sleeves and be long enough to be around the ankles. The robe is a shapeless item. Generally for Monks the robe will come around the neck in a high collar.
Step 3: The thick rope is going to be for the robe. To tie the robe closed Monks have the thick rope. It should be tied in a simple knot and then hang down to below the knee.
