Making morse code

I have done this, and in my head it should work, but I get an error that says: " Didn't get the right string output. Got: for S() "

pls help, grax

class Letter:
    def __init__(self, pattern=None):
        self.pattern = pattern

    def __str__(self):
        code = []

        for item in self.pattern:
            if self.pattern == ".":
                return code.append("dot")
            elif self.pattern == "_":
                return code.append("dash")
        return "-".join(code)

class S(Letter):
    def __init__(self):
        pattern = ['.', '.', '.']

Some hints:

(1)You have used

for item in self.pattern:

so you will want to compare item to "." or "_"

(2) Your code will exit with a return statement. Don't use return inside the loop.
