Add Quantity Label Before Quantity field

Hah… that’s easy,

add_action( 'woocommerce_before_add_to_cart_quantity', 'wp_echo_qty_front_add_cart' );
function wp_echo_qty_front_add_cart() {
 echo '<div class="qty">Quantity </div>'; 

After you add the above snippet the label may appear on top of Quantity field instead right next to it, but you can fix that with a little bit of CSS.

    float: left;
    padding: 10px;
