Great pattern and as with almost all patterns this can be knitted in the round.

This pattern can't be knitted in the round-it must be left open at the front for the zipper. Not sure if this comment was intended for this pattern or not-but knitting in the round is not an option here. The only reason I mention it, is because a lot of new knitters depend on the comments for guidance with these patterns and your comment if intended for this pattern would be really confusing to them.
