I don't think I'd classify that as easy for a beginner. It involves fair isle knitting, shaping and working with charts. It's not impossible, but you'll need to be patient with yourself as you learn.

How you join a new color depends on what you're doing. For fair isle you don't knit with them together, but you are using both yarns and carrying them along. I carry one color in each hand and knit both continental and English at the same time. Some people carry them both in one hand.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
