Aha! I figured out where you got CO 189.

Cast on 189 sts, knit for 3 rows and bind off. Sew the ends of the strap to either side of the bag with yarn.
Unless OP is using much smaller needles with the RHSS, I still don't see the size coming out to 13" (85 sts worked with sz 10/6mm needles). Maybe I aslo picked up on the wrong bit of data.
