The help file for -sts graph- shows that the graph will take -cline_
options-.  In particular, the option you're looking for is the 
-clpattern- option.  For example, please try the following:

. sysuse cancer

. sts graph, by(dose) clpattern(dash solid dot)

Since you only have two lines in your graph, your option should 
include -clpattern(solid dash)-.

A complete list of cline_options can be found in [G] -connect_
options-.
