Double and Long Tail Cast On
I think I saw a video somewhere showing either the DCO or LTCO and each CO resulted in 2 stitches being cast on (not just the first one)

Was I dreaming or is there a way of casting on 2 stitches at a time?

My next project needs me to CO 320 stitches and if I can find a way to do it faster than one at a time it would be awesome.

There's a double needle CO, which is the Long tail with another needle you wrap the thumb sts around, but that's just to make the CO looser, it's still a single st CO. Tubular cast ons may CO 2 sts at once, though I'm not certain about that.
