    Low heat you can. Leave oven door open too. Even a gentle fan, keep close eye on it through. Out may shrink if had wool content. Best to but out over a heat proof upside bowl so out doesn't lose shape

    I would not want to ruin a hat and that is the way to do it.

    Get a piece of string and tie it between two posts somewhere. and then clothes pin the hat to the string. I have a back covered porch so I would hang it outside as the wind is always blowing. Dry it there out of the sun. You can use a pistol hair dryer to blow dry it faster...so long as it does not get too hot. But doing that uses electrical power and you pay for that. The wind is free.

    Yes. Lowest heat, hat on the top rack, leave the oven door open slightly, check often.

    In a very low oven, maybe? I dont think I'd try it though.

    You can but I wouldn't recommend it. You could ruin the hat.

    If you preheat it to its lowest temp, then turn the oven off, then yes. But you can't keep it on and do this, unless you LIKE your hats to have "grill marks" on them. A fan works better, and if you conveniently don't have one, just setting it upside down on a damp-proof surface (like on a plastic chair or on marble, or even formica) will work, but slower.
