The selvage is created all by itself. Just do the K2, P1 over and over again on each row, and you'll start to see it happen.

Of course, you could add an extra stitch at each end if you want, to make a different selvage. Some people do this, and just knit the first and last stitch of every row, with the stitch pattern in between. I never do that, though - and I've been happy with the way my scarves have turned out without the extra selvage stitches.

That pattern is great for making a nice, quick, reversible scarf.
