I'm also pretty confused with the instruction.
When I searched the net for Cr2 terminology, it showed up as cable stitch like this;

Cr2 R = sl 1 st on to a cable needle and leave at back of work, k2, then P1 from cable needle.

The one you have is completely different.

"slip the next stitch knit ways , K1 Psso the st over the st just worked back on to the left needle and work into the back of it"

This means we will end up with a decrease st. Here is how I will do it.

Slip the next st knitwise, k1 and pass the slip st over the st just knitted. Place this st back on left needle and knit to the back of it. You'll end up with one decrease. But what I don't understand is why it's called cr2 (cross right 2) because you don't really cross them over as a cable st instead you decrease a st. ?????

I think it's best to get a hold of a designer. You'll get the best answer there. I'm sorry if I can't help much.
