Self intersecting sweep?

I'm trying to sweep along a curve but I need it to intersect.

Basically trying to revolve along a curve. I can't get it not to fail without explanation, or not error out saying it's self intersecting.

Any help fixing my stupid would be greatly appreciated.


This image shows the sketch I want to sweep along the top curve.

Not sure why it fails, but you can probably fix it by extending your sketch into the existing cylinder so it overlaps.  That way you can avoid any "zero thickness non-manifold" errors and it should then be successful.
