This question already has an answer here:

The loop cut is skipping one face in particular (the circled one) and then continuing to the other side. I tried removing doubles and that didn't work. I tried selecting the n-gons and that didn't work. I also tried dissolving the edges and sliding them around but those didn't solve it either. Any suggestions? It looks like there's something blocking it or there's a kink in the mesh but I don't know how it got there. I've been working on the top of the anvil for some time and then I go to the bottom to find this. (And yes, I've checked similar questions but the answers did not help me. All of the solutions were things I've already tried).

    you already asked the question, there can be several reasons: your face is a ngon, there's a inner face, you have to remove doubles... – moonboots Sep 3 at 7:31

  • Lol how about no? And besides I already did that and it didn't work. And the answer I did get I didn't mind – Jessica Powers Sep 6 at 1:24

The problem is being caused by the parallel set of vertices (circled in red). This is causing a break in the set of faces on which you wish to create loop cut. enter image description here

When zoomed in, it looks like this

enter image description here

So the solution is to dissolve one set of parallel edges, that is not connected to the edge marked in green.(hot Key 'X')

enter image description here

Once they are dissolved, you will be able to loop cut through those faces. Checkout the attached blend file in which I dissolved those edges.
