The gauge swatch may be knit in stockinette stitch but the pattern cables will pull in the hat size. It says it's a ladies small (with directions to increase the hat size). And since the directions are given in rounds, it is meant to be knit on circular needles rather than straight. You can make a few changes to the pattern and work it on straights if you like although knit in the round you won't have any seam to sew up at the end and that's certainly an advantage.
