bsc = backward single crochet, also known as the crab stitch

Additional Terms:
3 dc cluster: dc3tog in the same stitch
Cross stitch: skip stitch, dc in the next, cross back and dc in the stitch you just skipped
3rd loop of hdc: Look at the back of the hdc stitch, and find the loop. Work all stitches for the round in that 3rd loop

13 stitches in 4”

12” wide x 14” tall, excluding straps when laid flat

Additional Notes:
To make this bag more secure you could add a liner, or a zipper, attaching it at about round 29.
I’ve included gauge information, however, since this is a lacy bag, it can be worked with a variety of yarn and hook sizes and will still look cute.
