Well, in sewing, the selvage is the part of the fabric that is inside the garment once you've seamed it. So I'm guessing they're calling your very edge stitch a selvage stitch, because after you do your seaming, it will be inside your hat. Make sense?

Selvedge stitches in knitting are the ones at the very edge of the row.
