Crochet Basket Planter Patterns, Mail Order Designs

I've been processing vintage patterns for the last 5 years and have recently realized that all of the Crochet Planter Baskets patterns are Mail Order Designs. I've not yet had occasion to come across one in the standard pattern leaflet books, or magazines. There are a variety of the Mail Order variety, vintage 1960's and 1970's. The only guess I can think up is Macrame, which become very popular in this same time period. Perhaps these Mail Order Designs were to compete with that market. Again, that is just a guess.
Here are a few examples of the Mail Order Basket Designs.
Design 653, Parasol Crochet Planter. A nice design at 12 wide and 15 inches deep will be more interesting than standard shapes .... assuming however you can find some kind of put to your plant with the rod down the middle !
Swan Centerpiece Crochet Pattern Design 530 Motif that is suggested as both a Table Centerpiece as well as a plant hanger.
Pineapple Basket Crochet Pattern featuring the always popular pineapples. This pattern goes a step further and gives directions for small and large daisy flowers to add to your basket.
Design 7068; Crocheted Dog and Cat planters: These may be more appropriate on a windowsill; just 3-1/2 inches wide and tall, but quite cute.
There are, of course, more Designs in the shop, if you'd like to browse.
Thanks for dropping by,
