It is a small little image, cartoon, drawing or picture that pro members can send to other members and it will appear on the their member page for everyone to see, you can attach a greeting and a personal message too. You can also earn achievement patches if you win contests or your instructable appears in a newsletter. You can get one right now if you want form Lithium Rain here.

I know what a patch is, I wanted to know what it is on instructables.

I knew that's what you wanted to know, but wanted to point out that wasn't the question you asked.
Have you ever used the search?

I have used the search, but not for that reason. You are right, I should have worded my question more properly.

A "patch" is a feature available for "Pro" members. After you pay for pro memberships, you get to send any member a Patch. This patch basically goes on the recipients profile. The recipient gets notified about this, and it's basically decoration, although some members use it as a prize for user-run contests (Contests not run by Instructables).
