Yet another point to remember--When you knit in the round, you DO knit every row, but because you're always knitting on the front of the piece, you are getting stockinette stitch automatically--knits on the front, purls on the back.

When you knit back and forth, you have to put the knits on the fronts and purls on the back to get st st.

When you knit back and forth and knit every row, you are going one way and then back down the other--working the back and front separately--garter stitch.

It sounds confusing, but the more you do it and actually see it in your hands, the more it makes sense.
