P2 within 2 sts?

Good Morning Fellow Knitters.
First, Happy New year.
I am confused by this direction.
I am knitting a shawl (I just started it) and it has a cable pattern.
The direction is as follows:
K2, P2 within 2 stitches, K2
How do I P2 within 2 stitches?

There’s a couple words missing or it was badly translated, should read -
K2, P2 to the last 2 stitches, K2

Or k2 p2 across the row, ending with k2

That is exactly how it was written that is what confused me so much. Thanks for the help
