How to create a repeating pattern from the previously designed pattern?


I know the steps in how to properly create a custom pattern by creating a square with various color and shape differences. However, I found the hexagon repeating pattern from a movie and I much rather how best to crop the hexagon so that it will tile properly.

This is the pattern that I would like to re-create for my swatches.enter image description here
