Rice Stitch is a stitch that is found on the reverse side of a broken rib stitch. Most people don’t know about the rice stitch (they only know it as “the beautiful reverse side of the broken rib stitch”). There are a couple of ways you can knit the rice stitch. The most obvious way is to knit the broken rib. Here is the second method:
Row 1 (RS): P1, *K1 tbl, P1; rep from * to end.
Row 2: knit.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2.
