You can do what's called an afterthought thumb. You can either pick up these stitches and knit a partial thumb for about an inch. Or you can pick these stitches up and just bind them off right away.

Another easy way to do this would be to knit this back and forth on two needles like a large rectangle. Sew up the side seam leaving a space for the thumb.
