Knitting needle cap
A knitting needle cap is an item used to place on the tip of a knitting needle when the needles are being used for a project, but are resting. The purpose is to prevent stitches from coming off the ends of needles.
There are knitting needles caps made for both one and two needles. Those made for one needle look similar to erasers that are attached to the ends of pencils. Those for two needles are wide and flat with two holes.
Sometimes the packaging calls these items 'point protectors' for knitting needles.
