Well, I haven't ever knit the booga bag, but what you are asking about is knitting through the back loop.
Normally, when you knit, you basically insert your needle from left to right, so as to knit through the front loop.
When you knit through the back loop, your needle is inserted from right to left. To understand what this look like, look at the SSK decrease. This is knitting two stitches together through the back loop. The difference is, you will not be resituating the stitches and you'll only be working one at a time.
I hope I've answered your question. Good luck
