I assume you are referring to picking up and binding off for that lovely neckline edge. :) The two needle sizes smaller, or one size in your case, are not dependent on whether it is garter or stickinette since you are picking up stitch for stitch. The difference in needle sizes applies to a vertical edge. Garter stitch is sort of an accordian fold if you look at it sideways. Needles too small, or skipping too often will pull in the fabric. When in doubt, swatch, my favorite word!
