The rice stitch is another easy and versatile stitch. Both sides are different, however they both look nice. This means the work can be used on either side. Pictured in the thumbnail image above is side one of the rice stitch. Pictured below is side two of the rice stitch.
Here are the steps required to knit the rice stitch:
Work on an even number of stitches.
Row 1: Knit one, purl one across the row.
Row 2: Knit all stitches across the row.
Repeat these two rows to make up the pattern. Check out the video below for step-by-step instructions.
