Repositioning Hot Water Baseboard Piping

Is it possible to create a secondary loop in hot water baseboard heat? In other words, I am thinking of putting in a "T" to the current set-up to add a section of heat piping to a wall that currently does not have it. Right now the piping is making a turn on an inside wall and I would like to also continue into the next room along the outside wall.

Sorry, I hope this is clear enough, I could not figure out how to add either pictures or drawings.

Can't tell much from your drawing.

If you tee off a baseboard. Then you decrease teh amount of water that was flowing through the original baseboard.

Ayuh,.... I'd think you'd be happier with the results it you elbow off to the new run,+ then double back to elbow back in where you took off...
That way you still have a postive flowable loop...
