Yep, if you're knitting flat then this is correct.

If you were to knit in the round you only have to knit (no purls) since you're never working on the back as a rule. For garter stitch in the round you have to knit a row, purl a row, etc.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
