Patchwork Pumpkin

This project is actually an UFO. I bought this yarn, a beautiful merino and I started knitting a poncho. Right off the back I realized the color was a little bit bold for a poncho, then, the yarn started breaking up. Yeap... breaking up.
The piece became this big UFO and I had no idea what to make of it.
Since my sister-in-law makes beautiful patchwork items, I bought a piece of fabric (lining) and she stuffed the pumpkin for me. I added up some leaves and the stem is knitted with the I-Cord technique.
I think it would look really cute in a basket, as a table centerpiece or pincushion.
Happy knitting!!
