A248969 Start with a single equilateral triangle; at odd n-th generation add a similar triangle at each expandable vertex (this is the "vertex to vertex" version); alternate with the "side to vertex" version for even n-th generation; a(n) is the number of triangle for each generation. 10

COMMENTS

The construction rules alternate between "vertex to vertex" (A061777 & companions) and "side to vertex" (A101946 & companions). See the link for an illustration.
