The pattern is the Prism Vest, which is knit from the bottom right corner to the top left corner in diagonal bands of squares, alternating a stockinette stitch square with a garter stitch square. Since it is knit diagonally, there are corners of the squares all across the bottom and up both sides of the front. These are tending to curl under, which is why I was thinking of blocking. I'll try waashing and drying with the points pinned down, sorta like you do with lace, and see how that works. I'm nowhere close to finishing, but wanted to figure out my gameplan early. Thanks for the suggestions.
