Crochet Camel Stitch (v1) is a simple stitch also known as the HDC in 3rd loop stitch. It is essentially a repeat of half double crochet (hdc) stitches in the third loop. The crocheted fabric has a nice texture and stretch and resembles a knitted fabric.
It is a two-row repeat crochet stitch that can be featured in many different projects. There are quite a few variations of the Camel Stitch, which is essentially a technique where you make a stitch in a different loop than usual, according to CrochetKim.
