According to Maggie Righetti in Sweater Design in Plain English, stockinette stitch will stretch lengthwise and become narrower widthwise (when knit regular top to bottom).

Of course, all sides of stockinette stitch needs to be anchored (with ribbing usually), but I would recommend doing some tests on a gauge swatch, which would include washing it, drying it (if the yarn can be dried), and stretching it this way and that to make sure it will behave as you want it to!
