Knit your cat a carrot with a green feather top!

This playful knit is a great stash buster. It knits up quickly on dpns. The carrot is stuffed with catnip and polyfill and topped with a green feather cord to make it irrestistable to felines.

No feathers? Try crocheting a feathery top as described by mac-attack or knitting an i-cord top like knittinkttn.

You can also knit on larger needles and felt your carrot prior to stuffing through the top, see notes by knittinkttn for more details.
