    Which sounds unnatural?

    I don't yet know.
    I don't know yet.
    I am yet to know.

    Thank you.

    The second sounds most natural.
    The first is possible.
    The third is not right.

    I wholly agree. Instead of 'I am yet to ...', you could say 'I have yet to ...' but you'd have to follow this with another verb, eg 'find out'
