I've been making a lot of "cozies" for Christmas gifts and I use hdc. I just do it in the round instead of joining rounds & chaining because I can't make that look good for some reason. So when I finish, a regular FO would look weird because a hdc is so tall. What I do to even it out is sort of like a half-double crochet but instead of finishing the stitch I finish up like a slip stitch. Does that make sense? So YO, insert hook, YO, pull through all loops. And then I do a regular slip stitch and the clean fasten-off (got that from the "Creepy Cute Crochet" book) so it steps down and it looks pretty even.
So if I want to write my patterns down, does that hdc/ss have a name???

I do something similar to even out a piece worked in the round.   Once I am done with the hdc I do sc till the edges are even then I do a few slip stitches then finish off.  That usually does it.  I hope that helps.

I don't think it has a name, but I've seen patterns that describe doing interesting things like that some times, and I think that just writing down exactly what you do would be easier to interpret (from a pattern reader standpoint) than having to look up what the abbreviation for whatever that stitch is, so that I know what the pattern is telling me to do.

I'm with Gwynevere. If you need to ask, so would the average crocheter. Writing it out is always straight forward. Perhaps You could call it a HDC/SS on the second or third reference?
