Nothing in the sentence indicates gender therefore my father in law should also be correct.

"My in-laws wear blue hats" should be accepted.

Could this also translate as 'my father/mother-in-law uses a blue hat'?

It's a bit of a silly sentence, but I'm trying to get my head around how the verb memakai can mean both 'to wear' and 'to use'.
