Out of the box, appendix

Fig 2. Did you think outside the box?
The answer is not to be limited by barriers which you have assumed are in place. No-one said your lines had to stay within the dots.

So start in the top left hand corner, draw a line to the top right hand corner, but keep on going.

Then draw a line diagonally back to the left hand side, taking in just two dots. Then go up to the top left again, and down diagonally the other way.

Four lines, nine dots.
