ch5 (counts as a dc and ch 2 sp on this and following rows) dc in first dc*

My interpretation:
if it a filet piece you're working on then:
you ch 5 and turn your work, make your dc in the next dc on the previous row.

If it's for increasing the row:
then you ch 5 (count as dc and ch2) and the instructions says dc in first dc which could mean: dc in the last dc of previous row where the ch 5 sts are made.
Hope this helps.
Hugs
Ferosa
