I have knitted and crocheted with several colors and done this numerous times over the years. On one row, you are picking the colors up UNDER the color you finished using. On row 2, pick up the color on TOP of the color you are finishing with. Changing direction of the strands each row should help to keep the colors in order. Occasionally, you may still have to untangle them if you don't maintain the switching sequence for each row. Hope this works for you.
I’m having trouble picturing that. I thought that tangling was inevitable, especially with knitting and Tunisian crochet, where you have to cross the colors to avoid a hole.
