My husband wanted to learn to crochet, so I showed him the basics....he decided to make up some stitch, and it's actually sorta nice. It's really thick, kinda poofy. This is what he did:

yo 3 times, insert hook into next stitch
yo, pull up a loop
yo, pull through 3 loops
yo, pull through 3 loops.

Does this stitch already exist?

I haven't heard of it, but perhaps someone else has?

It sounds cool, though!  Almost like... like a doubled hdc, or something!

I just tried out what you described real quick with some Caron simply soft and a 5mm hook.
It's in between a dc and triple crochet in height. It's definitely different looking. It would prob look cool in a really chunky yarn. Kudos to your man for being creative with a new skill!.  :-)
