Needle Conversion Question - mm to US
If a pattern calls for a 3mm needle, what US size would you use? I checked on line for conversion charts and can't find one that shows an equivalent for 3mm.

There is no exact US equivalent. Try US 2 and 3, and use whichever gives you the correct gauge. If you are growing a stash of needles, a metric 3 is a good addition.
