Noggin (Kuksa) Multi-Use Lanyard


Most belt toggles I’ve seen for a noggin are single strand and are short. The single strand is tucked up under the belt and the toggle on the end keeps the strand from pulling out under the belt.

I wanted a multi-use lanyard that would have various uses. First, I wanted a Crown Sinnet knot close to the connection loop at the noggin which would function as an extension of the short noggin handle making it easier to hold. I also wanted an extended loop that would allow me to fasten and lock the lanyard over a belt, or off a pack, tree limb, ridge line, etc.

I started with a diamond knot after the loop for the noggin handle, and then a Crown Sinnet (If you are interested in a Crown Sinnet there are verious tutorials on the web). I inserted the second loop inside the center of the sinnet as it was constructed. This provided me with a loop at both ends. The antler toggle was placed on the larger loop before it was inserted in the sinnet. It works well as intended. Here are some photos of the completed project.

Well there you have it. A Multi-Use Lanyard that allows you to attach your noggin (Kuksa) to various items, and provides an extension of the Noggin handle. It does everything I wanted it to do.
