You knit the strap starting at the back and when you get to the front, three sts go on a holder and the outer (armhole) 3 sts start the I-ccord bind off. You continue the I-cord along the underarm, behind the back strap. So you don't pick up sts where the strap began, you work plain old I-cord behind those strap sts. Then you continue with the I-cord bind off across the back of the tank to the other, unworked back strap.

When you start the new end of yarn, be sure to leave about a 6 inch tail to weave in later. With that size tail, the end won't come undone and weaving in the end will secure it.

You knit the first strap from the back toward the front. When you're reach the front and the strap is long enough to attach, you put the inner 3 sts on a holder and start the I-cord with the outer 3sts so the I-cord grows out of the strap. It's just across the back that it moves behind that initial strap.
These aren't easy directions to follow at this point but if you take them one step at a time, with the work on the needles, you can do it. You've gotten this far and the top sounds excellant!
