just make your 2 dc at the base of the ch3 that you made before you turned. think of it as being in the top of the last dc, i think that would be simplest.

In row 4, you ended with a 3 chain, so on row 5 you are going to work 2 dc in the same stitch that you started the 3 chain from (it's base). You are essentially making three dc in one place.
