That is a problem. One of the tricks for awkward repeats is to use two balls of yarn at the same time, alternating them every row or every other row but I don't know of any tricks for repeats that are too short.
Sometimes it's not easy but I have knit a few things in yarn chosen by someone else that wasn't especially to my liking. Can you search for yarn in the same colors with longer stretches of each color?
