Pattern Making

I'm currently working on a pattern within an artboard that I will make a repeating grid pattern. I'm having lots of trouble making it seamless. I'm a beginner in both Illustrator and pattern making. I've looked up videos on how to make my pattern seamless and figured the best way was to put objects on the border of my artboard and copy them to the exact location on both the sides and the top and bottom of the artboard. The issue is, in all the examples I've found using this method, the pattern sample on their artboard isn't symettrical like mine so they can easily adjust the material inside their artboard to fit the objects on the borders. My pattern can't be adjusted within the artboard as its symettrical and will look off if I adjust material to fit the objects on the border. Does anyone know how I can solve this issue? Also the artboard for my pattern is a rectangle not a square if thats at all significant.

You may want to have a look at the patternmaker (Object > Pattern > Make)

Set your units to points or pixels and use round numbers.

I'm working in pixels. Only other problem is I imported the image after making it in procreate and vectorized it online rather than doing it myself so the size is really really whacky. I can only make one end a round number. I messed up on quite a few different levels honestly. Thank you for the link though!

Hi! I attatched the pattern. When I make a repeating grid I end up with spaces running vertically and horizontally. I've tried to fill them with more material around the edges of an artboard as I said but it just ends up making more awkward white spaces in different places.

Are you using the pattern editing mode (Object > Pattern > Make)? If you do, then you could just take the pattern tool (from the top left of the panel) and adjust the size of the pattern. Maybe you could take a screenshot of this inside the pattern editing mode with the panel visible?

Maybe also take a look at this: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/create-edit-patterns.html
