A conceptually simple (but ugly) way to do that is to first define a
array filled with zeroes via the command Table and then use a For loop
to fill it with the desired values.
a = Table[0, {i, 10}];
For[i = 1, i <= 10, i++, If[i == 1, a[[i]] = {1, 2, 3}, a[[i]] = a[[i -
1]] + 1] ];
MatrixForm[a]
A more compact/elegant/efficient (but also less intuitive) way is to
re-think it in the form of functional programming and use something like
the FoldList command to do the job:
MatrixForm@FoldList[Plus, Range[3], Table[1, {9}]]
