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?

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.

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
