Curve Driven Pattern - all segments of the profile must be tangential

I am trying to pattern the ring (torus) in the picture below around the 3D sketch [so that the ring is always normal to the sketch] but I am receiving an error that "all segments of the profile must be tangential and they should be of one contour only" when I go to select the 3D sketch as my pattern direction.


The 3D sketch is a composite of a spiral/helix and a small 3D arc on either side. The end goal is a spiral-based curve with 10 rings evenly spaced along the entirety of the curve each also tangential to the curve.


Thanks in advance for the help.
