Sweater and hat patterns for 2-6 yr olds?

Anyone know of any good ones? I have been searching for a fairly gender neutral (aka you can change the colors and it would be appropriate for either) nice modern pattern for a sweater for 2-6 year olds and I just can't find one. I also want a warm hat pattern for the same sizes and can't fine one of those either. All the sweater patterns I found looks so 'shapeless' and the hats didn't even cover the ears :-?

I've been eying up these 2 sweater patterns recently:

As for hat patterns, I'm not sure. The only ones I have bookmarked are novelty hats (like, lion or apple, etc). Lol

I like this pattern, the Child's Placket Neck Pullover

Hats are easy to resize -- just make sure that they are tall enough for the child in question -- it may not be the pattern, but that the child has a taller than average head. One of the easiest patterns is just a roll brim hat

Someone's blog making a simple hat
