Criss-cross stitch

I’m knitting a pattern called Wrap Me Up and I am stumped by one of the blocks which uses the above stitch. The instructions are not clear to me. I have looked at all of my resources and can’t find anything. Anyone familiar with this stitch or this pattern? Help would be greatly appreciated.

What do the instructions for the criss-cross stitch say?

“p2tog and p1 in the first st again”

Question: Do you leave the p2tog on the left needle and p into the first st again? Or do you drop it off the left needle and then p into first st again?

Oh, that’s the purl version of a twist stitch. Yes, p2tog, leave on the left needle and purl only into the first stitch. Then let them drop off the left needle.
