Does anyone know if garter stitch is appropriate for 18th century use? Reason: I have a knitted hat pattern that I would prefer to do in garter. I have a sneaking suspicion that stockinette was the go-to stitch in that century, but I don't really know enough about the history of knitting to make that call.

Anyone?
