To the extent that 'design patterns' are useful at all, they are useful generally when talking about code that already exists because they give you a common vocabulary that you can expect other programmers to know covering many technical abstactions that had no "official" names before the notion of design patterns came in to prominence.

You shouldn't go out looking to use any particular pattern; but sometime in the future you may find yourself using one if you practice good design. At that point, if you need to explain the architecture of something to someone you can refer to its usage of the decorator pattern or whatever.
