COMMENTS
This "cross" of height n consists of a vertical column of n >= 2 squares with two additional squares extending to the left and right of the second square. (See illustrations.)
There are n+2 squares in all. The number of vertices is 3*n+2.
Now join every pair of vertices by a line segment, provided the line does not extend beyond the boundary of the cross. The sequence gives the number of regions in the resulting figure.

CROSSREFS
Cf. A330848 (n-gons), A330850 (vertices), A330851 (edges).
See A331456 for crosses in which the arms have equal length.
A331452 is a similar sequence for a rectangular region; A007678 for a polygonal region.
