I wouldn’t worry much about the number of patches.
Instead, use an iterative workflow.
Fill a piece of paper with patches. (Why waste paper? Use the whole sheet /
width of the roll.) Profile it. Use that profile to pre-condition a second
page’s worth of patches. Build a profile using the full set of patches from
both sheets of paper. (With Argyll, you don’t have to re-measure; see the
documentation for details on how to combine the two measurements.)
Chances are excellent you’ll be happy with the resulting profile. But, if
not...use _that_ profile to pre-condition a third sheet, and build a profile
from all three sets of patches.
If even that doesn’t do it for you, then your probably almost certainly has
nothing to do with patch counts or pre-conditioning; look elsewhere in your
workflow for problems to fix.
