  3. This may come a bit late....lolol, but there might be someone who can benefit from this information later on.. Crochet thread comes in sizes from 3 to 100, the bigger the number the finer the thread, so size 3 is nearly as thick as yarn and size 100 is like sewing thread. Hooks and thread size chart http://crochet.about.com/library/blthreadhook.htms Hugs, Maru
