If you want to use yarn you're going to have to crochet, knit, or loom one. No other way I know of. I agree flat panels to sew together is all I know to do.

Please don't bump your post.

Sorry, I know you want to make a bag, bit since you don't knit or crochet and you said your knitting machine is broken I don't think anyone can help. This is a hand knitting forum. If you decided you want to hand knit you can check the video section and online. If you want to crochet there are tutorials on the Internet and YouTube. If you want to sew again check for tutorials online.

Yes, a yarn bag made of yarn is a good idea if all you're going to keep in it is yarn. Unless you line it with fabric that's all that could be kept in it. Things that are pointy can poke through or damage the fabric.

We've already commented on how it could be done, but again... Flat strips of machine knitting sewn together, hand knit, or crochet. If none of those options work for you then the only thing I can suggest is cloth fabric.

I think your tube idea could work. Since I don't use a knitting machine and don't really understand how they work, I don't know the details of how you will do it. If you think hats and scarves are worthless, then for you I suppose they are. I like making hats and scarves, I also like making other things. Maybe you should make yourself a blanket of lots of different colors. You could use one color till it's all gone and then add another till it's all gone and just keep on going until you get it as long as you want. If it's not wide enough, make more than one piece and seam them together.

We want to help you as much as we can but we knit by hand and that's different from using a machine. We can only guess and make assumptions. When we've tried to answer your question and you post it again and use ALL CAPS we feel like you're SCREAMING at us. Using all caps is poor etiquette.

I did some searching and this site says it has free knitting machine patterns. You might look and see if it has something you can use.

Good luck with your knitting.

the caps lock was a mistake thats all
