Wolhemel blanket block 5

This is blanket block five using a cluster stitch. I've never done this stitch before and looks so more complicated than it is in practise. It looks like sheaves of wheat or corn to me.

I like the colour of this yarn too, not a solid colour but you see the flecks of the blue and yellow that make up the green. I would love to do one of the boys a jumper in this colour.

I also managed to complete the front on J's jumper, but a really bad headache prevented me from doing more than casting on for the back.

It reminds me of Peruvian Lace stitch from Vogues Stitch Dictionary. It's very pretty. I can't wait to see your sampler all done up. I like the yarn for this square.
