how much yarn needed to make the fisherman pullover?

This pattern is a free pattern on this web site. I am confused about the appropriate yarn and quantity needed. The pattern calls for a certain number of ozs. (or grams) of a worsted-weight yarn -- 38 oz for the size I'd like to make -- but gives no yardage. I'd like to make this in a cotton blend. Can someone suggest a suitable yarn and let me know how many yards I need? Thank you.
