I've been looking online for an easy fingerless mitten WITH thumb
pattern, and, I was wondering if
anyone in here can direct me to an EASY fingerless mitten with thumb pattern?

Here's some simple ribbed ones.

I made myself some convertible mittens/fingerless gloves (but of course, can't find the pattern since my old computer fried with all my links). I figure you can make these (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTbroadstreet.html), and just omit the flap if you don't want it. Here is another one (http://www.figandplum.com/archives/000253.html).
Not sure how easy or not these are for you, but mine were pretty simple. I've also made several pairs of the Nicholas Fingerless Gloves (http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/pdf_files/fingerless_gloves.pdf). Maybe you could just finish off the thumb, rather than leave it open? I found them easy to make too.

My favorite easy fingerless mitts pattern at the moment is at http://explaiknit.typepad.com/ - Everybody's Squooshy Mitts (pdf pattern link is in the right-hand column on the blog).
The best thing about this pattern (for me) is that the thumbs are knit first, and attaching them is easier this way. Plus, if I have a limited amount of yarn, I don't have to guess how much to leave for the thumb, and since it's top down I can keep knitting until it's either long enough or I run out of yarn.
