This diagram shows the wiring to control a receptacle outlet with two 3 way switches. The source is at SW1 and 3-wire cable runs between all the devices. The hot wire from the source connects to the common terminal on SW1. The common on SW2 is connected to the hot terminal on the receptacle. The traveler wires are spliced in the receptacle box to run to the traveler terminals on each switch. The white cable wire is used as a traveler to SW2 and marked hot with black tape.
At the receptacle the black cable wire from SW1 is connected to one of the hot terminals and the red wire is spliced to the white wire on the 2-conductor cable running to SW2. The white wire is wrapped with electrical tape to mark it as hot. The black wire is connected to the second hot terminal on the receptacle and to the top terminal on SW2 at the other end.
Also be sure the neutral from the source is connected to the neutral terminal at the light. A neutral wire will not be connected to the switches in these circuits, although some smart switches may make use of a neutral wire to operate the device.
In this updated diagram 3-wire cable runs between the receptacle and SW2 to allow for splicing the neutral source through to the second switch box. Here the white is not used for hot but instead the extra, red wire serves that purpose for the second switch.
