After you have the ribbing done with one strand of yarn, you add the 2nd strand and knit with the yarn doubled to make it thicker. Later you switch to the contrast color and use it doubled too. Just lay the 2nd strand alongside the first one leaving a tail on it, and knit the doubled yarn as if it was just one strand.
