Here is one that I made using a Matthew Walker knot. Also as you can see I have not combed it out (tut tut).

I like the one with the handle, even though it was not combed out.

To be honest, there is a very good reason for that. The rope is off and old fishing vessel and I noticed as I was working it the fibres were breaking up. Therefore, I decided not to comb it, as I would end up with a bald head and a comb over  ;)

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

The diamond sennit knot makes a nice start for this soft keyboard dust brush.
