The Rice Stitch is worked by stitching a large cross stitch, with each point crossed by a smaller stitch, forming what resembles grains of rice.

This stitch is easy to work and is commonly used as a textured filling stitch. It is worked in individual blocks.

The image above shows the Long Rice Stitch. The diagram on the next page shows both the Long Rice Stitch and the Standard Rice Stitch.
