Topic - prusik rope diameter advice please

ow arm - on 03 Nov 2013
Im only just starting out in outdoor climbing so wont be doing anything major yet.
I was thinking of getting some rope to make a short and regular length prusik loop from, something like 5mm static.

At the moment the rope Ive got is a 10mm Edelrid dynamic and I was wondering if the 5mm would be suitable to use if I needed to abseil off my rope doubled up through a belay plate using a french prusik around both ropes, or would I need something wider diameter for this?

Sorry for such a long question!
