How can I apply the same selection pattern in image 1 to all the faces in image 2?

    $\begingroup$ do you mean you're trying to select all the edges like in picture 2? $\endgroup$

When converting between selection modes (vertex,Edge,Face), Blender follows these rules:

  • When converting to a higher order (V>E>F) the higher-order components become selected if all their lower-order components were selected.
  • When converting to a lower order (F>E>V) all the lower-order components of previously selected higher-order components become selected.

Making use of that behavior:

  1. Select 2 sequential longitudinal edges in the pattern (from the first and second regions to be selected in the end).
  2. Hit CtrlShiftNumpad+ (Select Next Element) repeatedly to continue selecting further edges at the same interval
  3. From the header Select menu, hit 'Select Loops'> 'Edge Rings'
  4. Switch to Vertex mode.

The faces/all their edges in the regions are now implicitly selected, if you switch back between modes.

In the picture, I switched to vertex mode before making the edge ring selection .. that still works (by the conversion rules)
