Work rib as follows (1st row = RS): 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above - * K 2/P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 3 sts remain, K 2 and 1 edge st in garter st. When rib measures 4 cm, switch to circular needle size 3 mm and work next row as follows (from RS): K 3, * K 2 tog, K 2 *, repeat from *-* until 5 sts remain, K 2 tog and K 3 = 184-208-232-256-280-304 sts.
