I have to admit I am not entirely sure what the definition of selvedge is. Doesn't it just mean edge?

Anyway, here's my question:

I am trying to knit the Scrunchable Scarf (free download on Ravelry). It is a VERY basic pattern: Cast on a multiple of three plus one on each end for the selvedge. Then k2p1 on both sides.

Well, it doesn't say what to do with those selvedge stitches. I figured slipping both of them purlwise was the answer. But after 2 inches of the scarf, I am not so sure. The corners are way rounded! The bottom of the scarf looks like the letter U. :teehee:

So I must be wrong... Can anyone enlighten me?
