Laniakea

Our galactic cradle in the immeasurable heavens, Laniakea carries us ever onwards. Night winds will forevermore sail us dreamers through the celestial seas.
We are starstuff. We are the infinite.

Laniakea is a fingering weight beanie, knit from the brim-up. An easy lace pattern flows in almost nebulous structures towards a gently spiraling ribbed crown.
