The Not-quite Brioche Crochet blanket pattern is a great stashbuster which uses squares which use a combination of post stitches which look like brioche knitting from the front combined with solid granny squares.
If you have mini skeins of variegated hand dyed fingering weight (4 ply) yarn to use up, this is your project! I used 12 different shades from a yarn advent calendar but you can use any colors from your stash.
Pattern has step by step written instructions with many photos and also a link to a short video for the brioche square section.
