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?

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

As an update:
Everything is working fine for me, but it would be really great to have some input from the Squarespace team in terms of best practices.
