A pattern phase, specified in user space.
The pattern phase is a translation that Core Graphics applies prior to drawing a pattern in the context. The pattern phase is part of the graphics state of a context, and the default pattern phase is
(0,0). Setting the pattern phase has the effect of temporarily changing the pattern matrix of any pattern you draw. For example, setting the context’s pattern phase to
(2,3) has the effect of moving the start of pattern cell tiling to the point
(2,3) in default user space.
