I am not an expert, but what little I did was just take the unused skein of yarn and lift it over the yarn you are working with, this allows your working yarn to trap the yarn you are not using. I do this every 2-3 stitches making sure not to tighten the unused yarn too much as this will cause puckers on the right side of your work.
