I borrowed this book from the library and I suggest you do the same. That way, you will know for sure.
I did knit the Pilot Hat in there. I don't know if it was just me or the book, but I must have ripped that crazy hat apart 8 times! I STILL didn't knit it to where it looks okay! I must admit, though, that I am not using the yarn they recommend in the pattern, I'm using another brand of big chunky yarn, I think maybe Lion brand. But I did use the size 19" double pointed needles, which my husband made for me because I couldn't find any to buy. (he is a wood worker and has a bunch of cool tools and they came out really nice!).
It is a pretty cool book with a lot of nice patterns. But anyway, try your local library.
