Can "choset la" mean just one sock, or does it mean a pair? If it means a pair, then "yon choset" would be "a sock"? Pa vre? Mesi

I guess it can.
Usually Haitians say yon grenn chosèt when they want to say one sock.
Egzanp:
Poukisa w'ap mache ak yon sèl grenn chosèt nan pye w?
Why are you walking around with just one sock?

The same thing goes for shoes - yon grenn soulye (one shoe)

by the same token, they don't need to say chosèt yo, to indicate that it's plural.  Socks and shoes come in "sets", no?
example:
Kote chosèt ou?
Where are your socks?

Al met chosèt nan pye w.
Go put your socks on.

Lakay mwen se mozayik ki genyen, se sa'k fè m toujou gen chosèt nan pye'm.
I have tiles floor at my house, that's why I always have socks on.
