So I saw on a blog a beautiful music note blanket. I really really want to make something like this, being a musician myself and one of my best friends is a musician as well. Our bdays are a day apart and I'd love to make matching blankets for us for our bdays. I've never crocheted off a graph/chart and I can just imagine how LONG ti would take to do a graph blanket if it's done in sc.... So, can it be done in a bigger stitch and does anyone have a nice music note graph? Thanks to all!

Graphs are usually made up in sc or Tunisian simple stitch because those stitches are square(ish). 

If you don't mind a blocky look, you could probably do 2 dc for every square.  Your best bet in this case is to make up a swatch and see what your gauge is.  If your row gauge is half of your stitch gauge, then doing 2 stitches for every square would work!

Your other alternative is to decide on what stitch you want to use and make some graph paper to reflect that, and then draw the note on it and follow that... if that makes any sense...
