[Ravelry FO] Catnip ‘dynamite’ cat toy

Our cats have some old and becoming more tatty toys called Catnip Dynamite (like this one sold by Amazon UK) and they love them. I decided to knit them a new one (or two) using remnants of Lyric 8/8, some dried catnip that we have (I could not find it so have used catnip spray) and some good old poly-fill in the stash.

It maybe looks a little more like a catnip tampon but the cats love it!
