A 20mm crochet hook would equal a size T, and to my knowledge they don't make size Ts.

The crochet hook used is a G (4.25 mm). The 20mm item is a large knitting needle or a broomstick lace pin.

The woman asked me what I will knit with a US 35 (20mm) srtaight needles, well I said is for crochet!. So please do not confuse, the needle is for making the loops, the hook I used is just a G (4.25mm). Or you can use a pvc pipe instead of the US 35 needle, hope it helps
