Help with instruction interpretation?
can you tell me what this means?
5 stitches and 7 rows on size one needles in k1p1 rib when knit in the round. Make sure to check your
gauge so your gloves will fit!"
It's for a pair of fingerless mittens.
I do know what it is to check your gauge but I'm missing an important piece of information: 5 st and 7 rows in how many inches?? Is there an assumed number of inches if it isn't specified?
Also, this calls for size 1 needles... I think that might be English or European needles? Are they different? and if so, what's the equivalent in US or mm?
Thanks so much for your help!!
