I wasn’t sure what to call this, but ridge seemed to stick in my head when looking at the pattern, so I just went with it! So introducing the Ridge Stitch in Crochet

This stitch would be great for an intermediate level crocheter, or higher, but if you are just starting out give it a shot anyway! You never know!
