UPDATE: I have updated the pattern and added some general instructions as well as instructions for the first couple of rows of the panel, just to help get started. You can follow the charts from there to complete the panel.
I Made This Last Supper Panel Using My Grandmother’s Pattern
I used to watch my Grandmother crochet beautiful tablecloths and doilies and even a couple of bedspreads. But I always thought her best piece was a filet crochet panel of The Last Supper. I was lucky enough to get her pattern after she passed on. Unfortunately, it was pretty tattered. So I took her pattern and the actual crocheted panel she’d made and re-created her pattern. About 10 years ago I crocheted the piece you see here in the picture. We had an auction at church and I donated it for the auction. One of the ladies at church bought my panel with the intentions of having it framed and hang it in the church. About a year ago some members of the church family got together and had it framed and it is now hanging in our church at the back of the sanctuary.
I am offering the pattern for this piece for $7.50 instant download or $10.00 printed and mailed with the proceeds going to the same yearly church auction that I originally made this piece for. Please contact me at email@example.com to purchase the pattern. I will need your email address please so I can contact you. I will be glad to either send you the pattern electronically or I can print and mail it to you. I do accept Paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org or I can send you a Paypal invoice if you prefer. Thank You.
The border around the panel is not part of Grandma’s original pattern. It’s the crown of thorns pattern and I added it to give the piece a better finished look. I either misplaced the pattern for the border or I’ve lent it to someone and didn’t get it back so I don’t have the pattern available for the border, only the panel itself.
Thanks for looking. Please tell me what you think!
