Filling an area with patterns in Photoshop is a one-way street, and you’re at the mercy of the pattern designer as to the scale of the results you’ll get. Ordinary pattern fills are not scalable, in fact, there is no control or setting at all for a pattern fill. Use the Pattern Overlay layer style for a more customizable pattern fill.
