They say necessity is the mother of invention. I LOVE using a foundation hdc to start projects, but wanted a similar stitch for the opposite edge when working projects like scarves and blankets. While playing around with different things one day, I found a way to create a stitch with a similar look and height. This may already be a stitch, but I have searched and haven’t found one. So, I’ve named it a “chunky hdc stitch”.
The swatch above was started with a fhdc. The following rows are the chunky hdc stitch. It creates a fun look when worked back and forth in rows too.
Chunky Hdc Stitch
YO twice, insert hook in designated st, pull up a loop, YO and pull through all loops on hook.
Tip: As you pull through the loops, pull through two, slightly rotate hook and pull through the other two loops. That will make it easier to get through the loops.
I hope you will enjoy this stitch.

I believe this is a half treble (triple) crochet. Check out this site: https://tinyurl.com/ok4q3lv
The difference is you do not do the second yarn over and through loops. You pull up and loop, yarn over and through all of the loops on your hook, not just part.
