Here's a video for k1b that may help. You can also look up k1-b in the Glossary tab at the top of this page.

Make sure you're knitting into the opening below the next st on the left needle and you'll be ok. Try it for a few rows or on a practice swatch and then tug on the work to put the sts in order. It may take a few rows.
Here's another view.

for k1b, you can also try picking up the stitch below and placing it on the left needle and knitting it as usual.

Try tugging on the bottom of the knitting and see if the loose yarn falls into place.
What are the other rows of the pattern st?
