Please look through my code lines as attached. I've tried several ways but i'm not getting through this stage. Please help point out what is wrong. Thank you.

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

    def __str__(self):
        translate = []
        for n in pattern:
            if n == ".":
                note = "dot"
            elif n == "_":
                note = "dash"
        moon = "-".join(translate)
        return moon

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

You are very close here! When you refer to the pattern stored in the object, you need to use the keyword "self." in front of it.

Fix that, and you'll pass the challenge. :+1:

Thank you so much Steven. It worked like magic. You are the best!
