Week 18 of the #YearOfStitch : Triple Rice Stitch
Who doesn’t love rice? AmIRight?!
This stitch made me pay lots of attention. I found that the minute my concentration drifted, I f’d the stitch up. Could just be me but I’m curious how it goes for you.
I love this stitch as filling but I love it even more as a border. I will show you examples of each.
Things to consider with this stitch…
Do what feels right. If you don’t like the way I’m suggesting you stitch it then find a rhythm that works for you. My pattern is all about reducing thread waste but maybe that is why I kept f’ing it up. So I leave it to you to figure out your own best flow. In the examples I’m using all 6 threads but as always I invite you to play around with different densities.
Let’s do this thing.
And now for the photos:
I started with the base cross stitches (6x6) to map out the border size I wanted
Boom. Border laid out. Now for the triple rice! yum.
I like to do one at a time so my eyes can focus. As you lock them up, you will find that some of the rice stitches (blue stitches) share some of the same holes.
A lovely border…
Or, a lovely filler stitch
