Can any of you tell what size thread the lady is using in this video?  She doesn't specify anywhere that I've been able to find.

Here's the pattern she provides:

It is impossible to know from a video, or a photo, what size thread someone is using. The differences in thickness are very small, and these small differences produce very different results. I looked at the patterns from your 2nd url. These are very basic patterns for learning the stitches. For these, it doesn't matter that much if your thread size isn't a perfect match for the thread you use. It is a little thin or a tiny bit too thick it won't really matter. My guess is that it is something like #40 cordonnet crochet cotton, or #60 or #80. I would suggest acquiring all 3 of those sizes,  so you have a variety of thicknesses on hand for working samples.

Some time ago I posted this on this site. It involves measuring how many spaces per 2 inches on the footside, and the thread size that matches that.
