OK, for patterns like this I usually write out the rows and check them off as I go along. Ignore the first set of directions because it says to work 0 rows for your size. Go to the next set and call the next row, row 1:
row 1 raglan dec-----neck dec
row 2 and all even rows, purl
row 3 raglan dec
row 5 raglan dec-----neck dec
row 7 raglan dec
row 9 raglan dec-----neck dec
row 11 raglan dec
row 13 raglan dec-----neck dec
row 15 raglan dec
(that's the first 16 rows, 7sts left)
row 17 raglan dec
row 19 raglan dec-----neck dec
row 21 raglan dec
row 23 raglan dec
row 24 purl
(that's the next 8 rows, 2 sts left)
Have fun finishing up this cardi!

It looks like it's a multisize pattern. Print it out, read through the pattern, and circle the directions for the size you need. This will avoid confusion. You can also cross off the row number as you complete each line.
