There are 2 ways to go - Magic Loop uses one long needle or 2 circ method.

There are books on both, plus lots of websites with tutorials. I used this websie to learn the 2 socks on 2 circs method:

I"m not a Magic Looper, so someone else will have to direct you to a site for that one.

I prefer two circs, but here's a good tutorial for two at a time using Magic Loop.
