Double treble crochet stitch

Here is a stitch that I don't think I have ever seen in a pattern. (Maybe I should use it in one.) The dtr or double treble crochet stitch is made like the treble crochet stitch but with an extra yarn over.
For example, the double crochet stitch needs one yarn over before inserting the hook into the stitch. The treble crochet stitch needs two. If you combine the two stitches (hence the name double treble), you need three yarn overs.
This stitch makes really tall rows and a lighter fabric with much more drape to it.
