New crocheter confused about chains

I am making a hat from a pattern. In one line it says "5 ch, *2 dc in following ch-bow, 2 ch*, repeat"
I am very confused about how I would do the 2 chains before repeating. The way I keep doing it I end up with 7 and it runs on together. That doesn't seem to be working.

Remember I am a beginner so please explain it to me in thorough detail.


If you could please write all the directions to that part we can help. Make sure you write it exactly as it as shows , . () and the way it is written because ch-bow does not look like a direction. Do that and we will try to help
