Countdown #24

Countdown #24 - Knight Path (modified)

Value: 2 points if you fill half the board, 5 points if you fill the whole board.

A knight moves in an L-shape, at times making it difficult to see where it is planning to go. With a knight starting on h1, can you create a path of knight moves that touches every square (see modified rule) on a standard 8 x 8 board once and only once, and ends on the square a8?

Modified rule: The knight is shy and wants to avoid the centre. Touch every square except e4, d4, e5, and d5.

Good luck!
