Rice Stitch

Rice stitch is composed of a large "x" cross stitch, covered by smaller stitches. This is a fun stitch where you can use one or two colors to create a layered look for added texture and dimension in a design. If using two different thread types, use the heavier thread for the bottom stitch, and thinner threads on the top.

Where to use it:
  • as bands in samplers
  • as borders
  • to replicate a lattice or fence
  • in needlepoint, it makes a nice background stitch
  • on linen, over 4 or more threads
  • on needlepoint canvas
What to use:
Kreinik Silk Mori, Kreinik Silk Serica, Kreinik Silk Bella, Kreinik Very Fine #4 Braid, Kreinik Fine #8 Braid

How to do it:
Work the large cross stitch first, coming up at 1, down at 2, up at 3, down at 4. Then - using the same thread, a different color, or a different thread - work the overlapping stitches, coming up at 1, down at 2, up at 3, etc.
