This is a quick and fun project, allowing you to play around with different colour combinations. Bombini only needs a small amount of yarn so it is great for using up leftovers.
The design reminds Kay of the stripes on a bumblebee, and the texture pattern is reminiscent of honeycomb. How did Bombini get its name? Well, it is because Bombini is the latin name for bumblebee!
