Substituting stitch of pattern

I'm wanting to make a hooded vneck childs sweater. It calls for a garter stitch pattern but i don't like that stitch. Will it make a difference if I follow the pattern but substitute stockinette stitch?

Garter stitches are fairly square whereas stockinette is more rectangles. If you knit up swatches you might be able to wing it.

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