Find a non-trivial pattern (p1, p2, … pn) such that the size of the set of primes with that pattern is itself a member of the set!

In base 8, there are 1057 solutions, all of which use the digit 0. So, 10 is the first base where there’s a sonnet prime that doesn’t include a 0 digit (and in fact there are 6367 of those.
