Yrsa was first published in Knitters Magazine K72, Fall 2003 under the name Cul-de-sac, using the Merino DK yarn.I

For years, since the magazine has been out of print, I have had requests for it. Here is the pattern, reworked in my style, with the same features as the original. I reworked it in Silky Wool, which wasn’t available at the time, with, I think, a lovely result.
