Pattern tool scaling

I noticed when I made a pattern one time that when I scaled it down it was blurry. I wasn't sure why that was as I assumed that it would loose quality when you scaled it up not down. When I saved it as a jpeg and previewed it, it was still blurry.

    Normal interpolation. PS' patterns aren't vector based, they are normal pixel data which behaves liek resizing any image. If you don't want this, you will have to create custom sharp patterns for different resolutions or as a minor, turn off scaling layer styles...
