The patternTransform attribute contains the definition of an optional additional transformation from the pattern coordinate system onto the target coordinate system. This allows for things such as skewing the pattern tiles. This additional transformation matrix is post-multiplied to (i.e., inserted to the right of) any previously defined transformations, including the implicit transformation necessary to convert from object bounding box units to user space.

If attribute patternTransform is not specified, then the effect is as if an identity transform were specified.
