Problem with knitting linear pattern as a feature

I am trying to create a parametric model of our main production part. It is being constructed as a surface, with a linear pattern feature adding repetitive segments in the middle. I would like to be able to apply a knit to the entire linear pattern, irregardless of the addition or removel of segments. However, I cannot select the linear pattern as a feature through the knit menu.

 

Currently my only path is to clear all of the old selections of the knit, and left click>drag a selection window over the entire collection of surfaces. There are a few other paths to individually select each linear pattern segment that I have come across, but nothing allows me to simply select the linear pattern as a feature, and thereby bypass the need to select each linear pattern segment in some manner.

 

In the attached picture, I am trying to select the "FULLCNVLINPAT" linear pattern feature. I can select the 3 surface revolves and the mirrored surface from the feature tree, but I cannot click on the linear pattern feature.
