I don't know much about sweaters so hopefully someone will help you with that. For hats, it depends somewhat on your pattern, because you will have to cast on more stitches. Depending on the design, this may mean adding another repeat of the pattern, or simply dividing your new CO number by the number of decreases you do per round in the shaping. (IE if you would normally cast on 90 stitches and do 6 decreases, and you cast on 120, then instead of decreasing every 15 stitches your first decrease round, you decrease every 20 stitches... does that make sense?)
