yoh -- wrap the yarn/thread around your hook -- then insert your hook into the stitch wrap yarn/thread around your hook again and draw it through your stitch -- this is what you do when you work a regular dc. You now have 3 loops on your hook just like with a dc. Grab the yarn/thread with your hook and pull it through the first two loops, just like doing a regular dc.

Now instead of drawing your yarn through the remaining two loops like you would to finish working your dc, yoh again, then insert your hook into the same stitch, and pull another loop of yarn/thread through -- you have 4 loops on your hook. Draw yarn/thread through two loops.

Now yoh for the third time, insert your hook into the same stitch for the third time, and pull another loop of yarn/thread through -- you have 5 loops on your hook. Draw yarn/thread through two loops so you have 4 loops left on your hook, then draw yarn/thread through all 4 loops.
