That's just the knit stitch then. When you knit on every row it makes what's called garter stitch.

If you purl every row it makes garter stitch too. If you knit a row and purl a row, that makes stockinette stitch. The reason is the back of a knit is a purl st, the back of a purl is a knit stitch. So there's really only one stitch in knitting, you sometimes just work it differently depending on which side is facing you.
