The Rowan linen cotton mix yarn makes this sweater absolutely perfect for Spring and Summer. The yarn is also hand washable, lay flat to dry so no expensive dry cleaning costs. If you substitute yarns in this pattern you may not achieve the same amount of definition, but it should work up into a beautiful sweater.

I think I would either use smaller pins for the sleeve rib, or less stitches then increase befor beginning the pattern. I don't like the bagginess of them on the pattern, but I do like the actual cardigan very much.

I've made top down sweaters before and I like this very much especially as it and others linked are also for larger sizes. Can I assume that the sleeves can be knitted to whatever length desired?

I too would be interested to confirm if sleeves can be knitted longer.

I would prefer a longer length sleeve, too, three quarters or full length. I don't see any reason why the sleeves couldn't be worked as long as you want them to be. Just remember to take into account the cuff so it wont be too long (something I tend to forget!).
