If you are okay with knitting lace, there is a pattern on Ravelry. Just type in "Hari Scarf" and it will pop up. It looks like what you have described.
Marino wool with possum fur is nice. They have it in Napier at Possum World. You could probably get it on line as well. They have it in Australia as well, but I've been told the New Zealand yarn is better.
Wouldn't happen to me. Ilike more variety in my knitting and my hair is too short
I found by surprise at Michaels in Auburn, Ca. Can not wait to start knitting with the yarn. I'll probably make a shawl or scarf. (Yes, I did say "knitting")
James Brett has some really nice ones in bulky, worsted and DK weights. Knits up beautifully.
My husband and I went on a cruise to New Zealand and visited Possum World in Napier. The possums were imported from England and are in abundance like the rabbits were in Australia. Since they are not native to New Zealand they have no predictors. The fur is combined with marino wool. I assume it would be some kind of spinning or rotating motion. The possums have thicker fur unlike the American possum. Is is very soft. I have three skeins of the yarn and can hardly wait to knit it up. My yarn is more like a DK weight and it will probably be a shawl.
I suggest if you frog it, wind it on a niddy noddy, tie the shank, then steam the yarn until the wrinkles com out. Hang up to dry. Then the yarn is like new and ready for the project of your choosing.
It has been my experience that every stitch should be counted. Are you using stitch markers? They help lot to catch mistakes before you get very far.
Check out verypink.com. She has a tutorial that is very good.
I am a spinner and would like to do something like that with my handspun yarn. The broom idea sound great. A child size broom would be great.
There is also marino and possum fur yarn. Look up Possum World on line. It is best to get this yarn made in New Zealand. It feels like cashmere. Awesome yarn.
I put most of my patterns in cloud and download them to my kindle as needed. You can enlarge the print to the size print you need. I scan any printed instructions and upload them as well. A kindle or tablet is a good investment.
I think the 1898 hat would work.
I have used several of the ABC patterns for 18" dolls. They have worked out well for me. Love the hat.
I scan and upload my patterns to cloud and download them onto my kindle as I need them. I can enlarge the print as much as I need.
