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?
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
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....
just posted smocking st, that when knitting loop and st off yarn was coming from left side, i now know my mistake, i went back to my project which is in the round and figured it out, as yarn is in beginning and not at the end in starting smocking st...i will never forget the smocking st. lol Thanks to everyone who helped me...

Reason: found my mistake
sorry, its me again, lol i went btween 6 and 7th st, drew up a loop slipped it on to LN and knit loop st and 1st st together but after i complete knit st it comes apart...going to pull my hair out soon...lol
Are you knitting through both the first stitch on the needle and the loop that was pulled through the 6th and 7th stitch gap? That will anchor the long loop and keep it from undoing itself. Vicke does that at the end of that smocking stitch video
