How to make a Half Treble stitch

In my opinion this is not a very common crochet stitch but I like to use it when I really don’t want a sharp or deep drop between a double crochet and a treble crochet.  I use this stitch in my crochet pumpkin leaf tutorial and here is a tutorial on how to make this stitch:

You will yarn over (yo) twice on your hook (just as if making a treble stitch)  ~~  then insert your hook into the stitch or space according to your pattern directions  ~~  now yarn over (yo) again and pull through that loop (at this point you will have 4 loops on your hook ~~  yarn over (yo) and pull through the first 2 loops on hook  ~~  yarn over (yo) again and pull through the last 3 loops on hook.  I’ve included some pictures too:

It just makes a subtle difference in the look of your leaf or whatever you are crocheting.
