First make a slipknot with color one (turquoise) just as if you would make it when you are about to use long tail cast on with one color.

Then with color two (orange) make a slipknot right after the first one.

Now pull both strands of color one between the strands of color two.

Then make a stitch with color one as if you would do when using long tail cast on with one color.

Now repeat the same steps as previously: pull both strands of color two between the strands of color one and make a stitch with color two.

Repeat until you have the desired amount of stitches.
