Also known as: Point de riz, Seeding stitch
This stitch is just a chaos of single straight stitches used to fill patterns. Unlike the seed stitch, it does not follow any straight line or pattern, rather its speciality lies in it not having a pattern. It looks like strewn rice grains over the ground, which contributed to its name.
I will work on a paisley pattern to demonstrate this stitch.
Make a single straight stitch at any angle, preferably from one end of the pattern. Keep making such single stitches randomly at different angles till the entire pattern is filled. A finished sample would look like the pattern above.
