Are looping Bézier curves possible?

I know how Bézier curves work, but how do I make one that loops smoothly?
I understand that each control point adds another line to the algorithm.
3 points requires 2 lines
4 points requires 3 lines
5, 4 etc.

What I don't understand is how to get the starting point and end point to loop smoothly. If they're in a loop them how does one account for the infinite points in the loop?

Is this possible with a Bézier curve?

Is this of any use? In any case i might suggest maybe posting your question on stack exchange .
