Stockinette stitch is just the name given to the pattern that you get when you knit one row and then purl one row and continue like this, alternating knit and purl rows. If the V side of the fabric is on the outside of the sweater or dress, it's called stockinette. If the bump side of the fabric is to the outside, it's called reverse stockinette. You can see that in your pattern, the yoke has the bumps showing, so that's reverse stockinette stitch.
