Decrease
Slip st across first 3 hdc, * (slip st, ch 3, 3 hdc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row; repeat from * to last ch-3 space; slip st in last space; turn, do NOT make a block in last space.  Sc around all squares putting 2 hdc, ch1, 2 hdc in each corner, finish off.
Note: When sc around make sure to have the same amount of st’s on all sides. 48 is the number I have.
Now you need to lay out all four squares starting at outside edges, working inwards seam 6 inches leaving the rest unseamed.
Strap
Note: Make sure your straps are not to long, other wise you will have a really low cut shirt, more like a too low cut shirt.
Join yarn to the ch-1 space in any corner. 
Row 1: 4 hdc in ch-1 space. Turn. 
Row 2: Ch-2, hdc in each st. Turn. 
Repeat row 2 until strap measures approximately 10 inches then match the corner and attach it to other square corner with 4 hdc in ch 1 space, finish off, do the same thing to the other side.
Note: You might want to try on the tank top before you finish off.
Now hdc around the edges of neck and arms until it fit right, also if it is not long enough you can hdc around the bottom but make sure you put 2 hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc in the corners. Enjoy.
