COMMENTS

The first pattern (0,2) is for twin primes (p,p+2). Row n contains A083409(n) patterns, each one consisting of 0 followed by n1 terms. In each row the patterns are in lexicographic order.
These numbers (in a slightly different order) appear in Table 1 of the paper by Tony Forbes. Sequence A186702 gives the least prime starting a given pattern.
