Here is a set of diagrams showing the different movements of the Knight, every possible move is indicated with an arrow. When the Knight is in the center of the board, it can move to 8 different squares.
In the corner, the Knight can only go to 2 squares.
The Knight is the only chess piece that can "jump" over other pieces, as shown here, the pawns do not restrict his movements.
