A selvedge stitch is just an extra stitch at each end of the row that's not technically part of the pattern. Some patterns include them as the stitch you will seam later. You just seem to be slipping the first stitch of each row. It'll make the edge a little neater, that's all.

All you're doing in this case is slipping the first stitch in each row. Just take it from your left needle to your right without wrapping the yarn. Insert your needle as if you were going to purl the stitch and transfer it from the left to right needle. Then start knitting the next stitch as the pattern calls for.

Just slip it. So basically it gets knit at the end of the next row, so the first stitch at each end gets knit every other row.
