That's a drop stitch, worked in the front loop only. I knew it had a name, I finally stumbled across it. This video is for working in both loops but you can easily work it front loop only I bet.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hhZ5f-NRXY
I love that pattern, if I ever do a real crochet project again that may be it.
Thank you. I'm going to try this and see if it works. I'll redo the first 3 sc rows by using only the back loops.
