    But I suspect that you had in mind a slightly different (and more interesting ) question/problem. If it is possible to start from K and after 63 moves to land at the diagonally opposite square (same color as K in a normal chessboard)? This is not possible, because a knight always changes "parity" as it moves. That means,from a white square it lands always on a black square, and vice-versa . Thus, after 63 (or any odd number of moves )it has to land to the last square being of the other color. Impossible.
