Not sure what is wrong.

The question is saying that it is not outputting the right pattern. Though when I run it in Visual Studio I am getting the correct instance with the right pattern.

Any help would be much appreciated.

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

    def __iter__(self):
        yield from self.pattern

    def __str__(self):
        output = []
        for blip in self:
            if blip == '.':
                output.append('dot')
            else:
                output.append('dash')
        return '-'.join(output)

    @classmethod
    def from_string(cls, text):
        pattern = []
        for pat in text.split("-"):
            if pat == "dot":
                pattern.append(".")
            elif pat == "dash":
                pattern.append("-")
        return cls(pattern)


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

This happens a lot with this challenge. For 'dash' you are appending a hyphen instead of an underscore.
