Syncing a pattern

I have made a custom footer in the form of a pattern. It appears under “My Patterns” in the site editor. It is not synced. I want to sync it because my understanding is that syncing it will apply the footer to the entire site. This is the outcome I want: I want this specific footer design that I have customized to appear at the bottom of every single page and post, without having to apply it more than once. That’s my understanding of what “syncing” a pattern does; please correct me if I’m wrong about that.

I cannot find the option to sync it anywhere, including where it says “not synced.” It does not show up under “patterns” in the block editor on any of the pages. Please please please help me I’m so confused.
