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

I merged all your threads today. There might be so e confusion at first with it all in one place, but it's easier really than multiple threads. So please ask all your questions relatiing to one topic here.

Are you pulling the loop tighter so that it hugs the stitches it goes around? The only other thing I can think of was already mentioned, that maybe you aren't getting your needle through the pulled up loop/stitch and the next one.

Just place the loop on the needle. If you twist it, you'll have a twist in the loop the encircles the stitches.
