Yarn substitution question
I would like to make this sweater,http://www.knitting-crochet.com/coolcot.html with part of my existing cotton yarn stash. I have 24 balls of Monte Cristo cotton blend yarn, 50% cotton, 50% Acrylic. The pattern calls for 100% cotton. Can I substitute the Monte Cristo blend yarn for the 100% yarn and still have it come out right? I cast on 21 stitches and I get the required 4inches on size 7 needles.

This will be a new experience for me since I have never made anything but socks in my short 5 months of knitting. Its time to branch out and learn new things.
