Please edit your post to take out the majority of the pattern. The link to it is fine. It's not allowed to post the entire thing, just a few rows you're having trouble with.

First, this is garter st, not stockinette. The first row is just being labeled as the WS (wrong side) for future reference and you may want to put a safety pin or piece on yarn in the middle of it so you'll know which one it is. The term 'wyib' means 'with yarn in back' just where you'd have it for a knit stitch. Slipping the st at the beginning of the row is always done with the needle inserted from back to front though, as if you were going to purl it. That's why it says 'wyib' to show you that the yarn needs to be to the backside of your work.

It's not that your post was too long, it goes against copyright regulation to repost an entire pattern, even if it is free. The site owners can get into trouble. Most people don't know that, which is why we gently bring it up.

need help
I am trying to make a scarf that has instructions of s1 wyib. I understand that this means to slip one stitch with yarn in back, but am i to do it knit wise or pearl wise, or does this not apply? Is there a video to this as well on this site? I did not find one.

If the pattern doesn't tell you how to slip, slip purlwise. Slip knitwise when you are making a decrease on a knit row. If you look on the Glossary page under sl1p or sl1k you'll find videos for each.

Slipping knitwise or purlwise refers to how you insert the needle, where the yarn lies is a separate thing. If you're just slipping the st, do it purlwise; if the stitch will be part of a decrease, then you slip it knitwise.
