Connecting to PMS3003 sensor

Hi all

I am a Raspberry pi rookie so please bear with me. I've just purchased a Raspberry Pi 3 and a PMS3003 particulate sensor ( ). I am trying to follow this guide:, however am having difficulties figuring out how to connect the two together as the pin sizes are different. The PMS3003 comes with an 8 pin female to female connector. My understanding is that I'll need to get some sort of adapter to convert the small 8pin out on PMS3003 into individual female pins that are slightly larger to fit over the pins on Raspberry Pi. Does anyone know the cable that I'll need? i've been googling and ebaying and can't seem to find anything suitable.

Thank you!
