Yarn substitute
Hi there!

Sometime soon, I would really like to knit the "Lush and Lacy Cardigan" by SweaterBabe, and I had a question about yarn substitution.

The pattern calls for a worsted-weight angora/wool blend yarn, weight category 4. However, I have two sweater-vests, and both are for cooler weather. I'd like something for spring or summer, and it appears that the cardigan might be a good choice...except for the wool. Does anyone have any suggestions as to substituting yarn/fiber? Wouldn't cotton be cooler?

All this assuming I can get gauge, of course...

Thanks!
