How to create a pattern on a cylinder

Does anyone have any idea of how I can put this pattern on a cylinder? I have tried to sketch the pattern at the proper size and wrap it around but it will not work. I plan on engraving this pattern on a brass cylinder using a CNC lathe and I am trying to show the customer what it will look like. My best guess is to sketch this pattern then wrap it around the cylinder and use a swept cut on the resulting curve but I can't get it do work properly. Any input would be appreciated.
