Divide all stitches into 4 parts, and place stitch markers if needed:

Child size: 10-10-10-10

53-56 cm: 11-11-11-11

56-58 cm: 12-12-12-12

Round 1: [k (8/9/10), k2tog] – repeat 4 times.

Round 2: knit all stitches.

Round 3: [k (7/8/9), k2tog] – repeat 4 times.

Round 4: knit all stitches around.

Round 5: [k (6/7/8), k2tog] – repeat 4 times.

Round 8: knit all stitches around.

Go on making decreases alternating one row with decreases and one row without decreases until you have 4 stitches on your needles. 

Cut yarn leaving 10-15 cm tail. Use a hook or tapestry needle to pull the yarn tail through the remaining 4 stitches. Pull tight to close the hole. Weave in ends.
