with some frequency while working on an sketch, this becomes over defined after to create a linear pattern. how could I avoid it?
Welcome to the forum. I know this isn't the answer you're looking for, but I'd recommend not using sketch patterns. I quit using them years ago, and many experienced users did the same. You will almost always get better results from creating a single feature with the sketch, and then patterning the feature or body.
