  5. If you have difficulty with explanation of brp 1: When you do sl1yof, it creates the slipped stitch and the yo on top of it. When you knit the next round, the slipped st stays with the yo together. Brioche-purl 1 (brp1): Purl the st that was slipped in the previous rnd tog with its yo. It refers to the (previous) time you slipped that st, which is 2 rnds before.
