I am not very sure what u mean by this . I can use a single knight to cover all the 64 squares in a chess board. What does ur move mean?? Do u mean without repetition or something ???

When is odd, then the number of moves is and when even, . This is my theory. NOT A GUARANTEED FACT.

There is no knight's tour for a 4x4 board. It's easy to find a tour for the entire 5x5 board, but there is no reentrant tour for that board. There are five distinct reentrant knight's tours with quaternary symmetry on the 6×6 board.
