A standard (basic) ruler is broken down into 1/16 (short marks), 1/8 (longer mark), 3/16 (short mark), 1/4 (next longer than 1/8), 5/16 (short mark), 3/8 (same as the 1/8 mark), 7/16 ( same as the 1/16 short mark), 1/2 (the middle longest mark), 9/16 (same as the 1/16 short mark), 5/8 (same as the longer 1/8 mark), 11/16 (same as the short 1/16 mark), 3/4 (same as the 1/4 long mark), 13/16 (same as the short 1/16 mark), 7/8 (same as the 1/8 longer mark), 15/16 (same as the 1/16 short mark), and finally the 1 inch mark (the longest of all the marks). Then the process starts over again to the 2 inch mark, etc.

How do you read an inch ruler?

Knit your sample swatch, usually a little over four inches by four inches. Lay your gauge ruler on top of your fabric. There's an "L" shaped cut-out in the ruler. Usually it is two inches by two inches. Count the number of stitches you can see across, and then up and down. Divide each number by two (if the gauge ruler is two inches) to find the gauge of your knitting. It is more accurate to measure across four inches instead of two. You can use a regular ruler or tape measure to do this. Then divide the number of stitches in four inches by the number four to get the number of stitches per inch.
