Yes best to be honest.

If you do some background research and tell them that you are interested then they may still hire you.  When people are interested in a subject it is quicker, and cheaper, for a company to train them.  Means a good future investment for them.

Also remember that interviews are about personality aswell as skill.  To work in a team is extremely important, so being as boring as paint drying doesn't show great team work potential.  Be vibrant, be funny (but not over the top), show off every quality you have.  That will also help make up for any lack of standards in other skills.

In interview mostly the asker gives a scenario and you help to give you a small scenario and you have to answer what design pattern will best solve the problem and also they may ask to justify the answer.
You may also ask to give the answers of questions like : What is singleton or How abstract factory pattern work

I recommend that you do not fake it by cramming.   If the interviewer knows a bit about design patterns they will figure you out in a minute.  Even if you get hired your lack of knowledge will soon be realized.  

Better to be honest. If you are facinated by design patterns, then tell them how you are interested in learning and using patterns.   Express the steps you have taken to learn and apply them to your daily work.  

Good luck on your interview.
