It depends on what size you're making. The directions will differ, so if you let us know the size it will be easier.

On your first highlighted part, you'll work 5 rows, decreasing at the armhole edge every row and as you do that, you'll decrease at the neck edge on the third of those 5 rows.--16 stitches remaining.

Over the next 14 rows, you'll decrease at the neck edge on the 2nd, 6th, 10th and 14th rows--12 stitches remaining (you don't decrease on the armhole on these rows)

I use a highlighter to mark the size I'm knitting all the way through the pattern> Helps to keep my eye on where it needs to be. I find a pack of different colours a useful tool.
