My experience fits with Carole's suggestion. The patte(r)n makers I have come across have been in the Black Country and connected with engineering e.g. 1901 census, West Bromwich, William Garness, pattern maker and millwright. Ten years previously, age 15, he had been an engine fitter.

Pattern makers certainly worked in engineering.

Patten makers tended to be blacksmiths and shoemakers.
