Endell is a stranded colour work toque, knit in the round from the bottom up.

Named after August Endell, a German writer, editor, designer, and architect in the Jugendstil movement (the German counterpart to Art Nouveau), the flowing lines and connected leaves reminded me of recurring natural elements often found in Jugendstil or Art Nouveau aesthetics.

The fingering weight yarn creates a delicate stitch pattern, and can be worked relatively quickly. Available in two sizes, it works well for a range of head sizes.
