If you like those two patterns, try using a larger hook than asked for to make a bigger hat.  With my husband, I just crocheted in the round and kept trying it on him until it looked right for him.

I have had soem success with making larger hats by adding a row of increases to the pattern.  If the pattern starts from the top down, for example, a lot of them have you do a row with 2 stitches in every stitch, then two stitches every other stitch, two every third, etc.  If you add in one more row of that before going to straight crochet, the hat will be bigger.  It might take a bit of playing around to get it to fit right, though.  Also, the above poster had an excellent suggestion of just using a bigger hook.
