Can someone explain to me how come in some amigurumi books it says use a 5/0 hook? I was able to purchase some hooks with numbers like 3/0, 5/0, 6/0, and 7/0 (on top of the usual E, F, G, etc hooks).

Does anyone have the actual conversion of these hooks? I've been trying to look for them online, but it's mostly UK and US conversions...

THANKS SOOOO MUCH! Smiley Those hooks are actually cheaper here in Manila than the US/UK hooks. Plus they're more comfy. Thanks! Smiley
