I just bound off Sparkleberry. What do I do in blocking to create those graceful scallops?

There is no indication in the pattern to block this piece, and the yarn used to make it is man made so blocking it doesn't actually work. I know there are people on the internet that will say it can be steam blocked, but the truth is they are just stretching the yarn, which damages the fibre and there is no way to repair it after it is done. If you are determined to block it, wash it in lukewarm water, squeeze out the excess water and hang it to dry.
