I really like this pattern, but I wonder what I would do if I want to make the sleeves longer? I like the length of the sleeves for the pattern, but I like sleeves that are longer.

How much longer? If just an inch or two, you just work the pattern as written, but more rows before you begin the cap shaping.

im thinking maybe 3 or 4 more inches as far as how much longer I want the sleeves to be (Im glad that I have a flexible ruler so I can figure this out).

Then unless you want the lower edge to be tighter, just knit it that much longer. If you do want it snugger, CO about an inch less worth of stitches and increase on a couple rows.
