The problem is it looks like their are multiple ways to do this stitch. If you have the pattern please type out what the instructions are for the stitch pattern and maybe we can help. Where are you having problems?

have to begin row with smocking st, insert RH needle from front btween 6th and 7th sts on LN and draw thru a loop, sl this loop onto LH needle and knit tog with the 1st st on LH needle...it just doesnt look right when i do it....

Here's a video for a smocking stitch from Vickie Howell just to be sure it's going right. It may take a row or two to see how nicely this works in the knit fabric.

How to knit Smocking and How to: Smocking Stitch (Knitting) both show this technique on Youtube.

If it's any consolation, someone posted on one of the above videos that they were having problems with this stitch.
