Thanks for your question. Yes, the Rice Stitch is the same as the Bullion Stitch. You can see an illustration of the techniques here: http://crochet.about.com/library/blbullion.htm?once=true&
Wrap the yarn over your hook as many times as you would like. For this practice stitch, we'll use five. Wrap the yarn over your hook five times (or as many times as you would like); insert your crochet hook into the next stitch, yarn over and draw loop through stitch and remaining five stitches. Chain 1 and begin Rice Stitch again.
Thank you Phillis,
I was going thru my old Welon's Practical Crochet book and found The "Rice stitch" that looked like a rounded bullion st but wounded if there was a different trick or method. That answers my question. I'm ready to go. Thanks again, Barbara
