Stocking stitch and stockinette are the same. When knitting flat you knit one side and purl the other to get stockinette. When knitting in the round you knit only, no purling.

Garter stitch is all knit no purls when knitting flat. To get garter in the round you'd have to knit one row and purl the next.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
