Garter st in the round

I am making a sweater that is suppose to be done on flats but I am doing it on the round. After the ribbing it says to knit 2 rows garter st then change to stockinette sts. Garter st is just knitting every row right? But since I am on the round how do I do it.
After the ribbing should I purl one row then knit one row then start stockinette or

After the ribbing should I knit one row then purl one row then start stockinette?
After the ribbing for the waist, sleeve and neck they want me to do this.
Then neck says to pu sts on dpn, join and P1 row and K1 row then knit rib so is that what I do for the waist and sleeve? :??

garter in the round is knit 1 row, purl 1 row. I think you should knit FRIST and then purl, because if you do it the other way you’ll just end up with a row of purl bumps and no garter.

So…

Ribbing
Knit one round
Purl one round
Knit forever in st st.

Does that help?
