Matthew Walker Knot whisk broom
1/4" sisal rope. I added a 3rd strand to increase the size of the knot and whisking part.

Very skilful.
Without a scale, though, it's hard to imagine.
Would I be right in estimating it's overall length, given that it's 1/4" dia. rope, is about 3 3/4" overall?
If that is right then it would take ages for Mrs YG to broom our back yard!

Think if Mrs YG sees this she will turn you upside down and use your head to do yard  

That looks great
