Stockinette is where you knit one row, purl one row. For a border, you either want to knit every row (garter stitch) and then work the first few stitches in garter with the section between in stockinette.

You can also do a border in seed stitch with a few rows of that and a few stitches on each edge in seed stitch with the stockinette in between.
