I am not sure if this stitch existed before. It seems to me I have seen it some place but I cannot recall where so I cannot claim it to be my own.
The abbreviation is (fbb) which stands for Front & Back Bobble because it is worked in the front lp then the back lp of each st.

Yo, insert hook in back lp of next st, draw up a lp, yo and draw through 2 lps on hook, yo, insert hook in front lp of same st from the inside to the front, not from the front of the stitch. Yo draw up a lp, yo draw through 2 lps on hook,* yo and draw through all 3 lps on hook. This completes the stitch.

When the instructions say to fbb, ch2, fbb in the same st, do exactly that. Repeat the above instructions twice in the same two lps of the same st.
