This is a surprise Yajilin where the puzzle played out on an irregular grid. I was going to include a sentence in the instructions about how clues affect regions beyond a gap. But that would’ve spoiled the surprise. Having a 3 pointing to just 3 squares should be explanatory enough. These two Yajilins aren’t too hard but not too trivial either, just how I like my puzzles to be.
Yajilin – Draw a single closed loop passing through all the cells in the grid. In addition to the numbered cells, there will be some blackened cells that the loop will not visit. The numbered cells indicate the number of black squares in that direction. Black squares cannot be adjacent to each other.
