As others have stated in the comments, you would continue like this:
Note: "a couple" doesn't always mean exactly two, although it often does.
As mentioned by Mick in the comments, thrice is quite old fashioned and while most people in the UK would understand, it's not commonly used.
You might also reference the fact that 12 is also known as a dozen (and therefore 6 is half a dozen):
There are also some other ways to reference numbers of "things" which don't really apply or work in the "times" example (some of which are a little archaic and more likely to be seen in literature or poetry than in everyday conversational speech/writing):

There are a load more which originated in cockney rhyming slang, but those above are the most common.
Anyway, I've gone quite a bit off-topic there, but hopefully answered your question and gave you a little additional insight as well.
Anyone who plays DROD knows it's:
Edit: Just to clarify, these are - indeed - protologisms. In DROD, they're used to indicate room coordinates (for comedic effect, instead of common notation), e.g. "Twice North, Septence West".

But you can use tuples,
Names for tuples of specific lengths:
5 quintuple pentadruple
6 sextuple hexatruple
11 undecuple hendecuple
Something that other answers have not mentioned is the use of "fold":
Merriam-Webster does mention that "twofold" means
having two parts or aspects
So "onefold, twofold ..." should be useable as an alternative sequence here.
Quick note: "thrice" is already rarely used! Quarce can be used to denote 4 times, but it also (extremely!) rarely used.
