Break off a piece of yarn approximately 8 inches long. Pull the yarn through each of the 4 thumb stitches on the needle, sliding each stitch off the needle so that the yarn is threaded through all the stitches. Pull the yarn tightly and thread through a sewing needle. Secure in place so that the stitches are tight and there isn't a hole where the yarn has been drawn through the loops. Use the yarn to sew the thumb seam.

Reattach the yarn to the beginning of the 8 stitches that have been kept on your left needle.
Complete the mitten- Continuation of row 13:
Knit 8, turn.
Row 14:
Purl across the 16 sts., pulling the stitches together as you knit behind the thumb. (You want to try to avoid having a gap.)
Rows 15 - 18:
Increase 1 at the beginning and end of row 15. Continue working in stockinette stitch on the 18 sts. (Knit across odd numbered rows, purl even rows.)
Row 19: (Decrease row)
K2tog., k5, (k2tog.) twice, k5, k2tog.
Row 20:
Purl 14.
Row 21: (Decrease row)
K2tog., k3, (k2tog.) twice, k3, k2tog.
Row 22: (Decrease and last row)
Purling, you will purl the first 2 stitches together, then begin purling and binding off all stitches until you reach the last 2 stitches. Purl these 2 stitches together, and finish binding off. (This will give your mitten a more rounded shape at the top.)

Finishing: Sew the side seam of the mitten. Make sure that there are no gaps between the thumb and mitten - you may wish to add a few stitches at the base of the thumb.
