Reading a DEC section in my pattern

I am on the 12th line in my baby-blanket and am totally stumped.
Directions for this line says:

ch3, skip first 2 dc and ch-1 sp, [dc in next dc, ch 1] 3 times,* (dc, ch 2, dc) all in ch-2 sp [ch 1, dc in next dc] twice, ch 1 **, dec over next 5 sts (skip next ch, dec, and ch), ch 1, [dc in next dc, ch 1] twice; rep from * to last 4 sts, end at **; dc iin next dc, skip next 2 sts, dc in top of ch-3; turn.

I am okay all the way up until the first **. Every possibility I could come up with did not get me far enough in my pattern to repeat and be on track.
Does the dec over next 5 sts mean too dec the entire 5 stitches right there? I'm so confused. Any help would be very appreciated.

Blanket so far is keeping up a wavy pattern.
Let me know if any more info is needed.

Pattern is a Baby Talk "Peek-a-Boo Blanket"
