Work 1 row K from WS and 1 row K from RS. Then continue with rib with K 3, P 3 and 3 ridge sts in each side (seen from RS). When rib piece measures (6) 7 cm (incl ridge) inc on next row on WS all P 3 to P 4 across middle 38 sts, this is done so that the band will lie neatly. When piece measures (8) 9 cm (incl ridge), loosely cast off with K over K and P over P.
