COMMENTS

Circle terms n = 1, 3, 6, 10, ... in the sequence (1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, ...). Partial sums of the uncircled terms becomes row 2. Circle the terms in row 2 that are one place offset to the left of the circled row 1 terms. Take partial sums and continue with analogous operations. (Cf. A125714 and "The Book of Numbers", p. 64.)

Left border (1, 2, 4, 10, 38, 186, 1106, 7718, 61662, ...).
