Help with selvedge edge on a moss stitch scarf

Hello, I am a basic knitting and am making a moss stitch scarf. My selvedge edges were not stacked v's. I figured out it was the direction I was bringing the working edge forward and or backward after the slip stitch. Now one edge is correct, but the other end is a mess of v/s and what looks like a bar from a purl stitch. I have unraveled the yarn almost 20 times. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

There are different ways of doing selvedges. I like to slip the first stitch purlwise and then always knit the last stitch. This work out best when you work with a plain stockinette stitch. I've tried it with seed st.

Here are some resources for doing selvedge edges;

have fun knitting!
