Water Slide is a beanie worked top down in garter stitch with twisted stitch cables. The first few rounds can be a bit tricky to work, but keep with it. It gets easier as your work gets larger. Once you hit the body the hat becomes easy peasy to knit.
It is written in sizes from newborn to large adult, so everyone in the family can have one. Yardage used varies depending on hat length and the size of the pom pom.
