Convert Pattern to "In the round"?

I am currently working on a teddy bear that is 95% knit it stockingette stitch, all knit flat and then seamed up along the edges. (The legs, arms, body, and even the head are all knit basically as flat tubes and then seamed… )

What would I have to do to change it to knit in the round?

I know the purls on the “wrong” sides would become knits and the few areas of garter would be purled on the wrong side.

Would I “knit” the wrong side rows backwards?

Example if it said

Purl 7, purl 2 together, purl 6

would I

Knit 6, knit 2 together, knit 7

Any hints would be helpful!

You’ve got it. Stitches and the order in which they are worked are reversed from the wrong side.
