Abstract: In this paper we construct an end of a self-similar shrinking solution of the mean curvature flow asymptotic to an isoparametric cone $ C$ and lying outside $ C$. We call a cone $ C$ in $ \mathbb{R}^{n+1}$ an isoparametric cone if $ C$ is the cone over a compact embedded isoparametric hypersurface $ \Gamma \subset \mathbb{S}^n$. The theory of isoparametic hypersurfaces is extremely rich, and there are infinitely many distinct classes of examples, each with infinitely many members.
