The addition of the "BR" is for BRIOCHE. Hence brk is a brioche knit (sometimes pronounced 'bark', and brp is a brioche purl (aka 'burp'), as both of these are made the normal knit and purl way, but with the addition of the extra yarn over on the stitch. Worked like a 2tog. But since the two threads are NOT separate like regular knitting they are not referred to as two stitches, they are ONE stich that gets either barked our burped.

I  also have no idea what brp1/brk1 mean.  I get the purl and knit part, but does "br" translate into.  It would be nice if the pattern would have a stitch glossary.  I've been knitting for 50 years and have never seen this.  I have the yarn, would now like to make the cowl.........  HELP!!!!   Please.
