This pattern, as written, uses 4 colors. You can easily adjust to incorporate more, using the given yardages .
Take the time to knit a swatch and wet-block it. I understand an exact finished size may not be super important, but its possible you will run out of yarn before finishing repeats in the pattern. Swatching can help prevent a super fun game called,Yarn Chicken. This is a very straight-forward pattern. Every section starts on a RS row, unless otherwise stated. The edge/border is incorporated into the design and the same 4 rows are repeated throughout (except where a final color change happens). In this design, always slip sts purlwise.
