From the description that you give, it would seem that you make a cut and then that cut gets re-cut into smaller sizes??? Hope this makes senses after reading your pattern. Good luck!

Usually to crosscut a strip means to cut from one selvedge to the other -- a crossgrain cut.

Usually recut means to take one of the crosscut strips and sub-divide it.

I read it as cross cut = cut a long (42" for example) strip into two 21" strips; or into more than two or three strips from the first long strip.

Recut would = where you perhaps sew two strips together on the long sides and then cut them into smaller segments such as you'd do to make parts for a 4-patch.

These are instructions likely found in the making of blocks by speed or strip piecing, not template piecing.
