Garter stitch is when you knit every stitch on every row, or you can also purl every stitch on every row. If you knit 1 st and purl 1 stitch that can be ribbing, or it can turn into seed stitch. Knit 1 row and purl 1 row is stockinette. There's videos for these basic stitches on the Tips page.

That's when you knit flat. If you knit in the round, knitting all rounds gives you stockinette and if you knit one round and purl 1 round, yes you get garter stitch.
thank you suzeeq, that makes sense now. i remember now, I had the stockinette, garter & ribbing sts confused. I am glad u cleared that up for me. My project would have been confusing and I probably would have given up. Or it wouldn't have turned out the way it is supposed too. I do appreciate that, thanks again.
