I have searched both Squarespace and Cloudflare Support as well as blogs. I don't have any specific instructions on the best way to utilize the Free version of the Cloudflare CDN with Squarespace. If its even possible. I get a notification of SSL on the site.
Squarespace Support gave me this link:
If you can't do it on the Free plan, whats the best method on the Cloudflare premium plan? Change to the Cloudflare Name servers?

I stumbled on this post by mistake, but I'll give you the rundown.
You're basically sending the nameserver to Cloudflare then bouncing the non-www record back to the original host, who still has your DNS setup even though it's inactive. Your host then forwards the domain on to the correct destination.
I'll attach a couple of screenshots from a friend's site, whom I just walked through the process.
(I lack the 'karma' to actually post the setup images, which is somewhat ironic given the circumstances)

EDIT: You could almost certainly make this work with Cloudflare's new Page Rules / Forwarding system as well but I haven't tested it yet.
