To understand the knight move, you must think 3D. The L move of a chess knight can be (a) just orthogonal (eg, vertical then horizontal), (b) orthogonal then up/down, (c) up/down then orthogonal. That's why the knight has a lot more moves than expected.

The same happens with the Bishop (they can move diagonally up/down) or the Rook (they can move up/down besides orthogonally)
