I have this book (although I haven't knit from it YET) and it is full of top-down practically seamless sweaters in sizes 1 year, 2 years, 4 years, and 6 years, has pullovers, cardigans, hats, and socks. I bet you could request it from your library.
Top Down for Toddlers (http://www.amazon.com/Top-Down-Toddlers-Lynda-Gemmell/dp/B000M09DB0/sr=8-4/qid=1166812528/ref=sr_1_4/002-6688220-7228831?ie=UTF8&s=books)
Last m inute knitted gifts has a gorgeous toddle pullover in the round. And the corrected (full) pattern is on the purlsoho website :cheering:

Barbara Walker of the Encyclopedia of Stitches (in 4 volumes) fame, has a book called Knitting From the Top which works from measurements. You can knit raglan sleeves, set-in sleeves, saddle shoulders or yokes, and she has instructions to change the pattern in multiple ways. It's about $20 on Amazon.

Go to the Books page and at the bottom, mixed in with pattern corrections is the link to the pattern.
Also, the Knitting pure and Simple site has a free baby/toddler sweater knit from the top down.
