Camel Stitch - working into the third loop.  Instead of going through the usual space to start your stitch, look for the angled stitch below where you would normally insert your hook.  by working into this third loop (the one sitting at a diagonal Which can be found just under the top front and back loops,) in the front of your work. 

BACK 3rd loop Camel Stitch -  worked by inserting hook into the BACK of your work around the Diagonal part (aka 3rd loop) of stitch, and then continue finishing OFF the HDC stitch.
