so I need pieces to overlay each other a litle bit but Illustrator doesn't let me to type numbers below zero. How would you solve this? Thanks everyone for trying to help!
One way to cheat is to:
1) Create a straight path with a length equalling, or at wee bit above, that of the pattern tile,
2) Move copies by a distance that equals the length of the pattern tile minus the desired overlay,
3) Apply the brush to the set of paths.
You can Group the paths or turn them into a Compund Path before or after 3).
the first is without grouping, the second is with compund path
it doesn't really fix this, just making it through once
Just to make sure: you made the paths with the desired amount of overlap?
Another way is to drag the Pattern Brush out upon the workspace and strip it down to the actual artwork, then move copies of it by the desired distance to get the overlap.
I've already fixed it with help by Monika, but I tried to use the pathes you said, and it didn't worked out
there are results by 2 pieces and one pieces

Draw a rectangle that is smaller than the pattern. Apply no fill and no stroke and send it to the back. Then make the pattern brush.
thanks a lot!
