You can k2tog on the knit rows, p2tog on the purl rows. That's when the neck edge is at the 'end' of the shoulder row. If it's at the beginning of the row as it will be on the other shoulder, it might look better to ssk instead.

That's a left leaning decrease, the same as sl 1, k1, psso, only done a little differently. Look at the videos on the Decreases page.

Generally it's done at the beginning of a row to make the dec lean inward toward the middle of a section. But it can also be done at the end and make the dec lean toward the edge, and you'd do a k2tog on the other end.
