In one memorable scene early in Moana (2016), Moana’s grandmother takes her to a hidden cave on the island where the young girl learns a stunning secret: Her people were once oceanic voyagers. Part of the award-winning soundtrack written by Opetaia Foa’i, Mark Mancina, and Lin-Manuel Miranda and featuring lyrics in English, Samoan, Tokelauan, and Tuvalu, the song “We Know the Way” tells the tale of Moana’s ancestors, who roamed the seas on their boats, discovering island after island and always finding their home. It is at this moment, inspired by her ancestors’ remarkable skills and her own deep love for her people, that Moana starts to form a plan that will not only save her island but ultimately lead her people back to the ocean.

Knit with bulky yarn flat back and forth in rows, this matching pillow and throw blanket is the perfect gift for any budding voyager. Inspired by the paintings on the sails of Moana’s ancestors’ boats, wave designs made up of easy knits and purls zigzag across the bright blue ocean, while boats made of knits, purls, k2togs, and yarn overs make you want to pack your bags and go explore. Squishy superwash is used for ease of care, so this comfy set is ready to face whatever adventures you throw at it.
