That instruction is the perfect one for intarsia, but not for Fair Isle. If you're stranding the yarn, you don't want to twist it. All directions I've read and followed say to hold one 'above' and one 'below' consistently, to avoid twisting. Your main color should be on the top and the cc color on the bottom like this.
