I would think that a solo instrument can hocket in at least one way.

The obvious way is to play a theme without hocketing, then hocket it by
playing alternate notes with distinctly different timbres or articulations.
Transposing one of the hockets would also distinguish them. These techniques
might even work without playing the theme whole first.

A differential hocket where each hocket repeats, but with different periods,
would also signal the hocketting.
