No you can use the same type of yarn. A cardigan is a sweater with an open front is all.

No reason you can't use a cotton blend. My LYS is moving and the yarn is all 50% off so I bought two sweaters worth of a cotton/acrylic blend called Plymouth Jeannee.

I knit my first sweater in college (20 years ago or so). I used Red Heart acryllic (which was one of the nicer yarns available for a reasonable price at that time) in a purplish navy to knit a sweater for me (size small adult). I had that sweater for a long time and still have the pattern. I don't have a favorite yarn or pattern now, though I DO have enough yarn in my stash to make a couple of sweaters, using everything from 4-ply to bulky weight yarn, from cotton to alpaca.
