Unwarp my cardigan, please!

My cardigan came out of the wash all warped/twisted. Can I fix this or is it a goner?

The cardigan is a blend of 45% nylon, 8% cashmere, 47% merino wool. I washed the cardigan for the first time today and tried to lay it flat to block it, as I do with all my sweaters to make sure they dry in the right shape. But it seems that the knit got warped in the wash and now the whole cardigan is twisted around. If I pick it up by the shoulders, the bottom button is a good two inches off center. If I straighten out the torso, the neckline gets really wonky and asymmetrical.
This has never happened to my other cardigans or sweaters, including a bunch of "hand wash only" items, and I'm annoyed that I splurged a bit on this one and only got to wear it twice. Is there any way to undo the warping? If there's nothing I can do myself, would a dry cleaner have other methods?
