Yes, it is. 
Look at this exemple
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Frapordo.com&charset=utf-8>

There are no complaints about the existence of the pattern attribute there.

In this case, the Validator show 3 errors because i use one regular
expression in attribute "pattern", but in this case "&" is not incorrect..

The errors are because you have written a regular expression and then
expressed it in text instead of in HTML. Since you are including it in an
HTML document, you must express it in HTML where the & character means
"Start of a character reference" and needs to be represented as &amp; if
you way to say "ampersand".
