I want to select text from multiple lines up till and including the pattern pattern. When I use v/pattern the text till attern is selected (not including attern). How can I select text including attern?

E.g., when I have the text

yada yada
yada n pattern

and my cursor is at the first y, I am looking for a command to highlight everything.
