Hacerse pato

Hacerse pato literally is to be a duck. But we know there is much more to it.

Idiomatically, hacerse pato means to pretend not to see or feign ignorance.

You know when the dishes need washing or the clothes need putting away you conveniently don’t notice (hacerse pato) them hoping someone else will.
