I would.But then I fudge things all the time...but then I would probably adjust the number of rounds of straight knit rounds to adjust the length of the toe so that it will stay at 2 inches.
thank you. That's all I needed.
I deleted.

nvm = never mind . I wish people would leave the original question instead of editing it out. It's confusing.
absolutely! if the question occurred to one of us, there are probably more of us with the same question...even if you got your answer, leave it so the rest of us can profit...thanks in advance.

Yeah. I agree. I've gotten answers to questions before I needed to ask because someone else did and I read the question and responses. Star toes aren't something I do but sometimes I can find helpful links for someone else.

Star Toe Directions for Knitting Socks:

Star Toe knitting socks customization.This toe shaping is worked with the stitches divided evenly onto four needles with a fifth needle as a working needle. The shaping can be lengthened by adding more plain rounds between the decrease rounds or shortened by working the decreases on every round.

Work until the foot measures the desired total length less the toe shaping, ending at the seam line.
Shape the toe as follows:
Round 1: *Knit to last 2 sts of needle, k2tog; rep from * 3 more times-4 stitches decreased.
Round 2: Knit.
Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 a total of 6 times, then rep Round 1 (decrease every round) until about 8 stitches remain.
To finish, cut the yarn, leaving a 10″ (25.5 cm) tail. Thread tail on a tapestry needle, draw through rem sts, pull tight to close hole, and fasten off on WS.
