I'm having difficulties with the sweep feature, can anyone help?

I'm going through the Part Design tutorial creating a paperclip, and the sweep feature doesn't seem to be working. The figure I'm using to sweep is a 5 mm circle, and the path is a simple paperclip design that isn't an actual part yet, just some lines. The sweep path is on the top plane, while the profile sketch is on the right plane. At first it goes well.

However, after this, it just seems to break.

I tried selecting the whole figure anyways to try and have it fix itself, and it worked to an extent, but the size is all wrong and it's just off for some reason.

Can anyone help? I'm not sure what's going on here. I followed the directions, all the dimensions are correct and they're all on the correct planes. All arcs are tangent to all lines. I don't have a clue.
