Band issues

I am working on the Shapely Boyfriend Cardigan, free from Knitty, for dd2. I just finished knitting the button band for the second time. The first time after binding off, she tried it in only to find it pulled up dramatically in the front because of the tension of the band. So I frogged, picked up stitches with better light and more care, knit a couple rows, put the band on waste yarn, checked to make sure it didn't look like it would pull up and proceeded. Last night I bound off and it did the same thing only not as dramatically. Argh! I am hoping that it will block out. Sooo frustrating.

Other then that love the yarn and the pattern is well written.
