When you knit every row in flat knitting, it makes garter stitch, but when you knit in the round, knitting every round makes stockinette stitch.

I'm still not sure at all what you're knitting. You asked about knitting in the round. If you are knitting in the round, you will join your stitches. This works for a pullover. http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/advanced-techniques If it's not a pullover then knitting in the round won't work. Check the video link I included to know what I'm talking about when I say knitting in the round just so we can see if we're even talking about the same thing, OK?

The pattern may be easy, I don't know, but when you start doing it other than as written it gets complicated. Maybe for your first sweater it would be a good idea to use a pattern you can use as written, either to not modify the one you have or find another that fits the way you want to do it.

If you join the stitches you would be knitting in the round. If you need garter stitch in the round you alternate a knit round with a purl round.

Here's a link to the pattern.
If you want to knit this pullover in the round, you'll join the stitches to knit in the round. Cast on twice the number of stitches given for the back for your size, follow the directions for the Moss stitch in the round and then change to knit every round (stockinette stitch). The yarn tail will mark the beginning of the round. When the knitting measures 17.5" (for the smallest size) you're at the armhole. You could bind off 2sts at the beginning of the round and then two sts halfway around for the armhole. For the smallest size that means bind off 2sts, knit 76sts (counting the one stitch left after the bind off), bind off 2sts and then knit 76sts and you should be at the end of the round. From here on, you have to knit back and forth on the back, finish it, then knit back and forth on the front (knit one row, purl one row for stockinette). You can continue with the circular needles, you'll just be knitting back and forth. You can put the sts for the front on another circular or on a stitch holder or on some waste yarn while you knit the back. The only other change you have to make is to account for the stitches you bound off when you come to the end and bind off for the shoulders.
Good luck with the sweater. First time is always an adventure.

I don't see a BO 2 sts at the armholes for this pattern, it looks like a plain drop shoulder with no shaping though. That makes it even easier to do the sleeves - just pick up the stitches around the armholes and work down to the cuff, no shaping at all.
