i.e
\def\BigCrafting[#1]%
{\getparameters[Ph][c11={},c12={},c13={},
c21={},c22={},c23={},c24={},
c31={},c32={},c33={},#1]
\bTABLE
\bTR\bTD\getvalue{Phc11}\eTD\bTD\getvalue{Phc12}\eTD\bTD\getvalue{Phc13}\eTD\eTR
\bTR\bTD\getvalue{Phc21}\eTD\bTD\getvalue{Phc22}\eTD\bTD\getvalue{Phc23}\eTD\bTD\getvalue{Phc24}\eTD\eTR
\bTR\bTD\getvalue{Phc31}\eTD\bTD\getvalue{Phc32}\eTD\bTD\getvalue{Phc33}\eTD\eTR
\eTABLE
}
\starttext
\BigCrafting[c11=FOO,c33=GOO,c22=BOO,c24=Zoo]
\BigCrafting[c11=FOO,c24=GOO]
\stoptext

You can also use a better namespace
\def\BigCrafting[#1]%
\unprotect
\getparameters[flying-sheep at web.de:][c11={},c12={},c13={},
c21={},c22={},c23={},c24={},
c31={},c32={},c33={},#1]
\getvalue{flying-sheep at web.de:c11}%%
\getvalue{flying-sheep at web.de:c12}%% and so on
\protect
}
