Seamless Transition Question
I'm working on the "Bunny Beanie Pattern" shown here.

I'm currently working on the ears, and I'm a little confused about the seamless transition. Here are the instructions as printed (I've bolded the part I don't understand):

Rabbit Ears
Cast on 12 stitches with the Alpaca Regal, then directly following, cast on 10 stitches with Angora.

The right side of the ear will have a panel of Alpaca in stockinette stitch, and a slightly smaller panel of Angora in reverse stockinette. So the inner ear section will fit snugly inside the ear flap, and feature just a little bit of texture.

Row 1: (right side) purl 10 stitches of Angora, Knit 12 stitches of alpaca regal.
Row 2: (wrong side) purl 12 stitches of Alpaca Regal, Knit 10 stitches of Angora.

Repeat in this manner for 12 rows total. Be sure to twist the strands of yarn around each other once so that the transition does not require seaming.

Exactly what am I supposed to be twisting? And how? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

You should twist the stitches the way you would change colors in intarsia.

Amy shows it in her video about intarsia.
