DNS hosted at cloudflare, need subdomain pointed to netlify

I can’t seem to get this to work.

My site is hosted elsewhere, and dns is managed by cloudflare. I want to point a subdomain to a Netlify website I’ve created. When I use:

CNAME and point it to my Netlify URL, I get: Not found - Request ID: XXXX

What am I doing wrong?

Just got it to work. I really did find the steps confusing (even though I see now it’s simple), but I just had to add the custom subdomain.

For some reason, adding it felt like it was asking me to transfer DNS to Netlify and I didn’t proceed with adding it. Apologies for the confusion.
