Converting yarn weights

Knitting friends, I'm back after a rather lengthy absence, and have a question for you. I've found a pattern for a "kimono" sweater-jacket that I would like to make. However, I don't care for the colors available in the yarn called for (sport weight, doubled) and would like to know how to convert that to a single yarn... maybe a heavy-worsted, or ??? In the picture it didn't look bulky enough to be a bulky-weight yarn. Any help and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
