Thanks
Gonz,

First step is to fold your hat by hand where you want the crease. Personally, I fold it so the crease is slightly triangular right at the ventilation holes of the front of the hat

Once you've done that, head down to your ironing area. Wet a cloth so it is nice and damp and place it over top of the section of the hat you will be creasing.

As for the temperature, can't help you out too much there. The iron I use, courtesy of my mother, classifies temperature by what material you'll be ironing. Generally I just use max anyway however, because you still have the cloth to protect your hat. Working on a few pictures for you.
