LoyalPotato's open-source Yggdrasil is a 36-key split keyboard with some extreme pinky splay.
Published May 5, 2022

The Yggdrasil is a 36% split keyboard that is tailored to be comfortable to David's hand span.

Reversible PCB with (USB-C) Pro Micros running QMK firmware. Hotswap, and accommodates both MX and low-pro Choc switches.

The board was inspired by foostan's Corne, tapioki's Architeuthis dux and the kata0510s Lily58. And MrZealot's Ergogen was used to design the PCB.

At some point I also would like to add to each version an alternative with a rotary encoder, and will create separate variants for that as well – LoyalPotato.
