Graphing and stitching pictures has been an interest of mine for several years. However, it was only recently that I discovered graphghan designers. Here’s a couple of links to get you started:
Lissa Mitchell of Graphghans.com – Lissa also has a ton of groups on Facebook for her graphs and crochet alongs. If you are new to graphghans, I would start here. Some of the crochet alongs are free and some are paid, but the cost is very minimal (usually $3-4).
