Ceiling texture/pattern - how to reproduce

I have to repair some cracks and seams in my ceiling, and I would like to know how to reproduce the pattern/texture. I've looked elsewhere, but can only find patterns that aren't similar enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Jason

That is a random skip trowel finish. Will let the pro's tell you how is the best way. since no patern should not be to hard. The curves are just turning trowel with the JC on it.

It looks to me more like it was applied with a sponge. Basically you thin down joint compound to a paint like consistency [maybe a tad thicker] and apply it. It helps to practice on a scrap piece of drywall or cardboard first. If you don't like it once applied you can scrape it off while wet or sand down when dry and try again.

So, I should try that diameter sponge with a twisting motion?

Either the sponge or a stippling brush, which is round. Give it a twisting motion and pull down. Then knock down the sharp edges with a 12" knife.
