It's actuall easier to yo as the first st, and it won't matter, it's the same. For the first st on a purl row, put your yarn in back and purl the st, letting the yarn go over the needle. When you knit it on the next row, knit tbl so it doesn't twist and tighten up.

I've seen the question come up before on other boards. And there's one pattern that has a YO on both the beg and end of the RS rows, but in the notes she says to skip the YO at the end of the row and just do it at the beg of the WS row.
Jackie, if the question has to do with Hey Teach that I know you're working on, remember that you'll skip the YOs where you can't also do the decreases and the other way around. If you can't do the YOs, skip the decrease. Make sense?
