Can’t cast value of type UIViewController to PatternDetailViewController

The problem, as you have said, is in these lines:

if segue.identifier == "patternDetailSegue" {
    var detailViewController = segue.destinationViewController as! PatternDetailViewController 
    // Could not cast value of type 'UIViewController' to 'Patternz.PatternDetailViewController'

The error message tells you that the destinationViewController of this segue is not, in fact, a PatternDetailViewController. You may think it is, but it isn’t. You need to examine this segue in the storyboard and see what’s really at the destination end of it.

The fact that the error message describes it as a UIViewController makes me suspect that you forgot to enter any view controller type in this view controller’s Identity inspector in the storyboard:
