Experiments with the rice stitch

Here are some of my experiments on the rice stitch. I call them my italicized rice stitches. This is how I thought to myself, does every stitch on the rice stitch need to cross the one it stitches over at ninety degrees? No, I am free to play. May opposite stitches the in the second layer be a different sizes? More areas to explore.

No crossing at 90 degree angles in the second layer. And the second photo is only showing what happens when moving from more open to denser stitches.

Differing sizes of some opposing stitches in the second layer. Also differing sizes in the base stitches, but not uncommon and also used in yesterdays samples.

Below I tried just what ever came to mind.

There is a lot to challenge my thinking about this stitch.
