No First-Hand-Neighbors!!



Create the shortest possible sequence (using numbers from 1,2,...n) such that no number is next to its first-hand neighbors (e.g. the number 2 cannot be next to numbers 1 and 3, which are its first-hand neighbors).


1,6,3,5,2,4,7 Here is a sequence using 7 numbers that meets the requirement.

I am sorry, I am working on translating to English better. I mean to say that the numbers you use must contain the sequence from 1 to some N but don't have to start that way. So 1, 3, 5, 2, and 4 are fine since it contains numbers 1-5 and no first hand neighbors.
