Puff Stitch Pumpkin

It's a bit early for Halloween, but I wanted to share this unique little pumpkin that I just discovered. Mousica crocheted this and used puff stitches to make the pumpkin's body. It's an interesting technique that gives it a bit of a different look from your standard single crochet amigurumi. I've occasionally seen amigurumis made with a double crochet, but it's never occurred to me to try something like a puff stitch before. I'm guessing it would take up more yarn than a single crochet creation, but I really like the texture it creates. I can also see this being suitable for a bumpy skinned monster or maybe even the shell of a turtle. Any other suggestions?
