What's the best size hoook?

Ok, I am going to be making some squares out of crochet cotton (4 or 8 ply cotton) & I'm not sure which size crochet hook to use as I'm not going off a pattern. What would you suggest?

It would really depend on how big you want your project would be. I'm from the Philippines, our hook comes in numbers not letters like in the U.S. I usually use hook number 8. I am not also familiar with the crochet cotton that you are using so is really hard to give suggestions.

I use a size "H" when using U.S. 4ply cotton. Cotton I have found can be tricky, depending on what your making. It will shrink some when washed, and it stretches. I made a pair of slippers using cotton and they fit great. But as I wore them they kept stretching. Had to re-make them using acrylic.
