"slip first stitch with yarn in front" ?
Knitting a scarf with lace yarn.
The pattern reads: slip first stitch with yarn in front,
I know how to slip stitches with yarn in front "within rows".
But do not understand how to slip the "first" stitch with yarn in front.

It is a Morehouse Farm pattern...if that helps

You will start off with your yarn in front, as though you were starting a purl row. Then slip the first stitch from the left needle to the right. If your next stitch is a knit you will want return the yarn to the back by bring it up and between the needles, not under the right needle.

So the wool is kind of going/looping around that stitch, it will make a little horizontal bar in front of the stitch.
