I made my first cardigan in a class, and we weren't told to block the individual pieces before seaming. So now I need to block it -- the button-edges roll in badly, so that you can't even see the...

It's knit flat, so it will be folded in half and seamed.... it's really about 18" across when finished.

It's also being held by my 7 year old daughter, which makes the scale even wonkier.
