This stitch is commonly sewn separate from the main embroidery motif. As its name indicates, the stitch is reminiscent of a wheat sheaf.

First work three straight stitches (tutorial for the straight stitch is available here) ...






... Bring the thread in 7, between the three straight stitch, towards the middle of the second stitch. Do not let the needle go through the straight stitches.



Put the needle behind straight stitch 1on the left ...



...  then under straight stitch 3 on the right.


Pull the thread through in 7 again.


Take the needle to the back of the fabric and secure the stitch.
