Rice Stitch

This week we have Rice Stitch.  A lovely combination of knits and purls, this two row repeat stitch pattern is very easy to remember.

Work on a multiple of 2 stitches, plus 1
Row 1: Purl 1, *Knit 1 through the back loop, Purl 1*
Row 2: Knit all stitches

Note:  I have seen this stitch pattern written as "Purl 1, Knit 1" for the first row.  (There is also a stitch called Sand Stitch, which I have found to be the same - this video demonstrates both.)  You may choose to work that pattern that way if you have difficulty knitting through the back loop.
